Over the past six years, the United States has spent almost 100 million dollars on a highly classified program to help Pakistan secure its nuclear weapons, the New York Time reported Sunday.

The aid, buried in secret portions of the federal budget, paid for the training of Pakistani personnel in the United States and the construction of a nuclear security training center in Pakistan, unidentified current and former senior government officials were quoted as saying.

A raft of equipment, from helicopters to night-vision goggles to nuclear detection equipment, was given to Pakistan to help secure its nuclear material, nuclear warheads, and nuclear laboratories.

But with the future of Pakistan's leadership in doubt, debate is intensifying about whether Washington has done enough to help protect the warheads and laborateories, and whether Pakistan's reluctance to reveal criticial details about its arsenal has undercut the effectiveness of the continuing security effort, the report said.
