22-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, December 4, 1974 Canadian reactor may be used Pakistan bomb threat lingers By JOHN HAY The Canadian Press Suffering two years of economic reversals, Pakistan appears to be collapsing into a political shambles as it continues to fight off the after-effects of the Bangladesh independence war. Amid the turmoil is the threat that Prime Minister Ali Bhutto would use a Canadian-built nuclear reactor to produce a nuclear device to match India's test blast of last May. Bhutto has already suspended normal governments in Baluchistan and Northwest Frontier provinces, in- stalling his own governors in their places. The national parliament in Islamabad faces a walkout by opposition members to protest Bhutto's on separatist and anti-government influences. Since the Bangladesh war of 1971, which removed Pakistan's Eastern wing, the country has experienced continual battles between the central government and separatist-minded provinces. Thousands have been imprisoned during the conflicts, which have been marked by riots and terrorism. Poorest territory The bloody Bangladesh war relieved Pakistan of its most unhappy and poorest territory. Freed of the drag of supporting poverty-ridden Bangladesh (East the Pakistani economy enjoyed fast recovery after the war and Pakistan be- came a grain exporter. But with 1973 came disastrous floods, followed by equally damaging drought this year. The economy, which Bhutto had hoped would salve the wounds of the war, is in disrepair. India's nuclear by Canadian technology and material-added to the peril Pakistan has always seen in is neighbor. But Bhutto's real military problem is that the United States has not lifted its embargo on arms shipments to Pakistan, imposed two years ago. If Pakistan cannot get enough conventional arms, Bhutto has said, "we can't do anything but explode some sort of nuclear device." Strict agreement To use the Canadian reactor at Karachi to supply Plutonium for a nuclear blast, Pakistan would have to violate an agreement with Ottawa providing for inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agen- cy. That agreement is stricter than the one covering In- dia's CIRUS reactor which apparently provided In- dia's explosive material. There is no evidence that Bhutto will resort to a cost- ly nuclear explosion against his international com- mitments, although Pakistan has not signed the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. But observers are suggesting that his mind might be changed if he cannot get more arms, if his personal power within Pakistan continues to be threatened and if Pakistanis see a renewed danger from India.
