Islamabad: Pakistan on Tuesday claimed it has established a comprehensive and effective national nuclear security regime which is at par with the latest international standards and guidelines.

A brochure outlining Pakistan's nuclear security regime was distributed to delegates attending the second Ministerial Nuclear Security Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna this week, Foreign Office said.

"Pakistan has established a comprehensive and effective national nuclear security regime which is at par with the latest international standards and guidelines," it said.

"The regime is based on an extensive legislative and regulatory framework governing the security of nuclear material, radioactive substances, associated facilities and activities. This is backed by strong institutions and organizations with the requisite authorities, resources and trained manpower for effective implementation," it said.
