    Pakistan second behind North Korea in list of countries with least secured nuclear material.
    WASHINGTON:
    A Nuclear Threat Initiative index ranks Pakistan second behind North Korea as having the least secure nuclear material, hence posing the most risk, experts said on Wednesday.

    The index, which gave rankings on a scale of 100,
    listed Australia as having the tightest security
    controls among nations with nuclear material.
    The Nuclear Threat Initiative, in a project led by
    former US senator Sam Nunn and the Economist
    Intelligence Unit, aims to draw attention to steps
    that nations can take to ensure the safety of the
    world’s most destructive weapons.
    Among 32 nations that possess at least one
    kilogram of weapons-usable nuclear materials,
    Australia was ranked as the most secure. It was
    followed by European nations led by Hungary,
    the Czech Republic and Switzerland.
    On the bottom of the list, North Korea was
    ranked as the least secure of its nuclear material,
    edging out Pakistan. It also listed Iran, Vietnam
    and India below the 50-point threshold.
    “This is not about congratulating some countries
    and chastising others. We are highlighting the
    universal responsibility of states to secure the
    world’s most dangerous materials,” said Nunn,
    who has long been active on nuclear safety.
    Nunn, a Democrat who represented Georgia in
    the Senate from 1972 until early 1997, voiced
    concern that the world had a “perfect storm” – an
    ample supply of weapons-usable nuclear
    materials and terrorists who want them.
    “We know that to get the materials they need,
    terrorists will go where the material is most
    vulnerable. Global nuclear security is only as
    strong as the weakest link in the chain,” he said.
    The index, timed ahead of the March summit on
    nuclear security in South Korea, called for the
    world to set benchmarks and to hold nations
    accountable for nuclear safety.
    It also urged nations to stop increasing stocks of
    weapons-usable material and to make public their
    security regulations.
    North Korea has tested two nuclear bombs and in
    2009 renounced a US-backed agreement on
    denuclearization. The world has watched warily
    since last month as young Kim Jong-Un takes
    over as leader from his late father Kim Jong-Il.
    Pakistan has vigorously defended its right to
    nuclear weapons. The father of Pakistan’s atomic
    bomb, Abdul Qadeer Khan, admitted in 2004 that
    he ran a nuclear black market selling secrets to
    Iran, Libya and North Korea but later retracted his
    remarks.
    Australia does not have nuclear weapons and
    supports their abolition. But it has a security
    alliance with the United States and holds the
    world’s largest reserves of uranium.

    i would say that Pakistani nukes are one of the most secure nukes of the world, as it is the terrorists who are guarding it.
