A three-member team of international inspectors began checking a fertilizer factory in Pakistan on Tuesday to certify that it is not being used to produce chemical weapons, a senior government official said.
"The team will complete its inspection today," Tipu Sultan, a Foreign Ministry official, told reporters at the Fauji Jordan Fertilizer plant in the southern city of Karachi.
Police were providing tight security for the team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons after strong criticism by radical Islamic leaders, who say such inspections erode the country's sovereignty.
Pakistan's religious right, which controls the government in the deeply conservative North West Frontier Province and shares power in another, had asked the government to block the checks.
But Sultan downplayed their significance, saying it was wrong to compare them to the U.N. inspections in Iraq before the U.S.-led war.
Talking to APTN in Karachi Pakistani Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said that Pakistan has nothing to hide.
The Chemical Weapons Convention, signed by Pakistan in 1993, gives countries, including the United States, until 2007 to destroy all such weapons, with the opportunity to seek a five-year extension.
Signatories are subject to regular inspections of chemical stockpiles and have agreed to destroy production facilities. The United States and Russia, the world's largest possessors of chemical weapons, are both members.
Pakistan, which like neighbor India is armed with nuclear weapons, has said repeatedly that it is not producing chemical or biological weapons.
