Pak may allow centrifuges' inspection

This is aimed at putting to rest the controversy over N-tech transfer.

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has said that Pakistan was considering sending nuclear centrifuges to Vienna for inspection to end the controversy surrounding the alleged transfer of nuclear technology once and for all.

"We want to send nuclear centrifuges to Vienna for inspection to put to rest controversy over the matter," The Daily Times quoted President Musharraf as saying during a TV interview.

The President, however, said that the government had not made up its mind yet. Sending the centrifuges would help dispel International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) concerns about the alleged transfer of nuclear technology from Pakistan, he added.

The IAEA became suspicious when it came to know that Iran was in possession of nuclear centrifuges and this information had added a new dimension to the investigations into Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan's nuclear black market, he added.
