Dr. Abdul Khader Khan, the father of Pakistan’s nuclear program, recently granted an interview to local TV:
Iran was interested in obtaining nuclear technology. And because Iran is an important Islamic country, we wanted it to have the technology. The Western countries pressured us on this issue, and it wasn’t fair. If Iran can have nuclear technology, we will have a strong regional bloc that will repel international pressures. Iran’s nuclear capability will neutralize Israel’s power. We advised Iran to make contact with the suppliers and to purchase the equipment from them.
