Pakistan Navy chief Muhammad Afzal Tahir on Thursday said the Indo-US civil nuclear agreement poses a threat to Pakistan's water frontiers.

The Pakistan Navy would send its recommendations to the government to meet the challenge, Tahir told reporters during a function at the Bahariya (Naval) University in Islamabad.

Regarding a nuclear threat in the sea, he said its dimensions would be evaluated at the "proper time".

Foreign Minister Khursheed Mehmood Kasuri had earlier said that Pakistan believed the US-India agreement on civilian nuclear cooperation will have serious implications for the security environment in South Asia.

He said a "package approach" would have better served the objective of strategic stability and met the legitimate energy requirements of Pakistan and India.

Pakistan and India on Wednesday concluded the fourth round of talks on nuclear confidence building measures (CBMs), finalising an agreement to reduce risks of nuclear accidents.
