NEW YORK: Pakistan s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi has said that Pakistan cannot limit its nuclear programme unilaterally.

This she stated while addressing a joint press conference with Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry in New York on Tuesday.
She said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif made it clear to Secretary John Kerry that India should also be asked to take same measures what are demanded fromPakistan.
Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry said India should be pressured about how to maintain good ties with its neighbours. He said the PM’s speech includes a mention of Indian interference in different areas of Pakistan.
He said that we will also work out some solution to end Turkey’s reservations on Pak-Turkish schools being run in the country.
Aizaz Chaudhry said that the world acknowledges efforts and sacrifices rendered by Pakistan in fight against terrorism. He further said that no other state had acted against terrorism as much as Pakistan had.

The premier has been holding meetings with world leaders in a bid to garner support on Kashmir issue and to bring India to negotiations table to resolve this longstanding dispute.
