Not much more than a headline, with almost no detail.
What type reactor?
Old style fuel-rod core, or something more modern and fail-safe?
What are the byproducts?
How will spent fuel be disposed of or recycled?

Useless!

I know Iran isn’t. I take it you’re saying, in a round about way, that Pakistan isn’t either.

More nuclear material in another country that believes killing or converting infidels is the height of moral achievement. What could go wrong?

Thanks! I really didn’t know what ethnic group the Pakis are.

It’s definitely the moon rock cult ideology that is the issue.

Pakistan is Indo-Asian not Arabic. The official language, Urdu, is similar to Hindi but uses the Arabic alphabet instead of the Sanskrit one. Hindi and Urdu are so similar that the respective speakers can understand each other even if they cannot read each other’s language. The language is classified as Indo-European as is Persian/Farsi the language of Iran.

Being VERY pro-nuclear myself, I only hope they have an awesome number of security levels around the place.

Shoot to kill intruders on the ground
And Iron-Dome quality barriers\shields from airborne attacks
