Asked, in relation to the situation in Pakistan, if the Prime Minister had been making enquiries and taking a direct role or if the Foreign Secretary had mainly been dealing with it, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that the Prime Minister was obviously keeping a keen interest in the situation and had been in discussions with the Foreign Secretary in recent days.

Asked if the Prime Minister had spoken to President Bush about the situation in Pakistan and whether or not people would hear about it if he had, the PMS said that people would not necessarily hear about it but that we were in contact with the US Administration and the White House regarding this and other matters

Asked if the Prime Minister was concerned that Pakistan was a nuclear power, the PMS said that obviously we wanted to see a stable, prosperous and secure Pakistan, which was in the interests of not only the region but the whole world as David Miliband had been making clear.

Asked what that meant in terms of security and nuclear weapons, the PMS said that we wanted to see a secure Pakistan and that that was in everybody’s interest.

Asked if there had been any enquiries regarding the subject of security, the PMS said, that as would be expected, internal Government discussions on a whole range of issues were considered, including in relation to security and other matters.
