Washington won't discuss nuclear cooperation with Pakistan and is firmly opposed to a proposed pipeline that would bring natural gas to the South Asian nation from Iran, the US energy secretary said Monday. US Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman, who was on a one-day visit to Pakistan following a brief stopover by President George W. Bush earlier this month, said Pakistani officials raised the nuclear issue in talks Monday, but added that relations between the two nations did not extend to cooperation in that area. "We have developed a very wide-ranging and effective set of dialogue and discussions with Pakistan, but it does not include nuclear energy," Bodman told reporters. "There were expressions made by various members of the government about their desire to talk about nuclear energy but it was just not a subject that I was ... prepared to deal with," he said.
