China is to help Pakistan build a new nuclear power plant in the north of the country, the two sides have announced.
From: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/3683621.stm
The power plant, to be built at Chashma south of Islamabad by 2010, will be for peaceful purposes, a statement said.
It is the second nuclear plant that China has helped Pakistan construct, and comes after a Pakistani scientist confessed to leaking nuclear secrets.
To allay fears, Islamabad is stressing the new plant will follow International Atomic Energy Agency safeguards.
The new 300-megawatt power station will be located next to a plant the Chinese helped to build in the 1990s, also at Chashma, on the banks of the River Indus.
Pakistan's first nuclear power plant was built in 1972 in Karachi with Canadian assistance.
