ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's prime minister opened the country's second Chinese-made nuclear power reactor on Thursday, praising "unwavering" support from its long-time ally as Pakistan faces pressure over the discovery of Osama bin Laden.

Prickly ties between Pakistan and the United States face new strains after US special forces discovered and killed the world's most wanted man in the town of Abbottabad on May 2.

China, Pakistan's most steadfast ally since its independence from Britain in 1947, has already helped Pakistan build one nuclear power facility in Chashma, in Punjab province.v
