WASHINGTON – The United States has once again expressed satisfaction over the security of nuclear assets of Pakistan, local and foreign media reported on Friday.

During a press briefing, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said that the US has no concerns over the security of Pakistan's nuclear assets. To a question, she said officials of both the countries – Pakistan and the US – used to talk over several issues.

Psaki said that the US works with Pakistan over anti-terrorism and other matters. She said that the US had no information to suggest that the nuclear materials seized in Iraq had come from Pakistan. “We have had a range of dialogue with Pakistan and I am not aware of any new concern on this case,” she added.
