Pakistan has raised a special response force, a special escort force and a marine force to protect and guard its strategic assets, he said without giving details.
Besides, there are also counter-intelligence teams and a “personnel reliability programme” to oversee the strategic programme, he said.
The 25,000-strong security force has been equipped with the latest equipment and the personnel are fully prepared for “mobility on the ground or in the air”, he said.
The Strategic Plans Division, which manages the nuclear arsenal, has set up a training academy for the security force, Dar said.
The security force was always prepared and it trained for all conditions and eventualities on the basis of past experiences and potential scenarios involving the strategic assets, he said.
The system for identifying dangers is always at high alert and is constantly being reviewed, Dar said.
