AQK On Pakistani Enrichment Limits

An astute reader pointed out that AQ Khan recently “commented on”:http://www.thenews.com.pk/Todays-News-13-18638-Benazir-had-capped-uranium-enrichment-at-5pc-Dr-AQ-Khan Pakistan’s decision in the 1980s to refrain from producing WGHEU.

According to Khan, then- Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto

bq. ordered me to *stop the enrichment of uranium at 5%* as she wanted to please the United States and get aid,” Dr Qadeer said adding: “The enrichment was stopped at 5% as per the orders of the Prime Minister.

This action has been known for a while, but both the astute reader and I think this the first public AQK conformation of it.
