US scholar urges nuclear deal with Pakistan

Pakistan's Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif (R) shakes hands with US President Barak Obama during the opening session of the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) in The Hague on March 24, 2014Western powers should negotiate a nuclear deal with Pakistan similar to its accord with India as a way to reduce dangers from Islamabad, a prominent expert said Wednesday. Mark Fitzpatrick, a longtime US diplomat who is now a scholar at the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies, voiced alarm about Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal — the world’s fastest growing — which he said would likely expand until at least 2020. Fitzpatrick said no solution was ideal, but he called for Western nations to offer Pakistan a deal along the lines of a 2005 accord with India, which allowed normal access to commercial nuclear markets despite its refusal to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty.
