LONDON (92 News) - Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has said that Pakistan is a responsible nuclear state that is perfectly capable of safeguarding its national interest whilst respecting international law and practices.

Reacting to the statement of US President Joe Biden on his Twitter handler on Saturday, he said: "Our nuclear program is in no way a threat to any country. Like all independent states, Pakistan reserves the right to protect its autonomy, sovereign statehood and territorial integrity."

Addressing a Democratic congressional campaign committee reception, US President Joe Biden had said that Pakistan may be 'one of the most dangerous nations in the world' as the country has 'nuclear weapons without any cohesion'.
