    MUNICH, February 7 (RIA Novosti correspondent Alexei Berezin) - Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov delivered a report on international security in the context of Russia-NATO relations at the 40th Munich security conference. He expressed concern for the nuclear security around Pakistan.

    We have always paid attention to the threat of nuclear proliferation existing in Pakistan, Sergei Ivanov said.

    According to him, different countries and regimes, longing to possess nuclear weapons, and extremist and terrorist organizations aiming at the creation of the so-called 'dirty bomb' are likely to get nuclear materials and components from Pakistan.

    "Russia supports international efforts on Pakistan's joining the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and other non-proliferation regimes as a non-nuclear country," Sergei Ivanov stressed.
