Strong demarche was conveyed to the U.S. Ambassador.

Acting Foreign Secretary Jauhar Saleem called in US Ambassador Donald Blome to deliver a demarche on the recent remarks made by US President Joe Biden on 14th October during a Congressional Campaign Committee reception.

Pakistan’s disappointment and concern were conveyed to the US envoy on the unwarranted remarks, which were not based on ground reality or facts. It was made clear that Pakistan was a responsible nuclear state and its impeccable stewardship of the nuclear program and adherence to global standards and international best practices was well acknowledged, including by the IAEA.

The real threat to international peace and security was posed by the violation of global norms by some states, repeated nuclear security incidents without any accountability, an arms race between leading nuclear weapon states and the introduction of new security constructs that disturb the regional balance.
