India, Pakistan nukes secure: Pentagon
Updated at: 0530 PST, Wednesday, December 10, 2008
WASHINGTON: The Pentagon expressed confidence Tuesday that India and Pakistan's nuclear arsenals remain secure despite tensions over the recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

"We see no reason at this point to have any concern with regards to the security of either countries' arsenal," said Geoff Morrell, the Pentagon press secretary.

Morrell, who did not elaborate, made the comment in response to a question at a news conference about the risk terrorists could obtain nuclear weapons in the current crisis.

"Whenever you are dealing with terrorism in countries that are nuclear powers, it creates a heightened concern," he said.

"And so, we want to work with them and any others who find themselves in the situation, to make sure that their nuclear arsenals are always secure," he said.
