Islamabad has prohibited American planes to approach the nuclear facilities in Pakistan. As the RIA Novosti correspondent reports, this was said on Wednesday by Pakistani Interior Minister, General Moinuddin Haider. In an interview with Al-Halij newspaper, the general said that seven no-fly zones had been established near these facilities. "Every plane which will violate the borders of these zones will be regarded as an enemy target," he said. At the same time, the minister refuted the reports that the American Pakistan-based planes are taking part in bombing Afghanistan. "We do not allow the USA to use its aviation from our territory for accomplishing its military tasks, and I do not think that it is doing so," underscored the Interior Minister.
