A US lawmaker who introduced a legislation in the US Congress last week to pressure Pakistan to allow US officials access to its rogue scientist A Q Khan, asserted that his black nuclear market has not been closed down yet completely.

Appearing on the MSNBC news channel Congresswoman, Jane Harman, said she disagrees with the view that the A Q Khan nuclear network has totally been closed down.

In an interview to the CNN on Sunday, the former US vice president, Dick Cheney, had claimed success of the Bush administration in closing down this network.

"I disagree," Harman, Chairwoman of House Homeland Security Intelligence, Information Sharing and Terrorism Risk Assessment Subcommittee, told MSNBC in her interview.

"I saw the classified evidence when I was Ranking Member on the House Intelligence Committee and I was never persuaded that we totally closed down his international arms bazaar," she claimed.

Harman claimed that Khan's network sold the secret nuclear technology to Iran, Libya, North Korea and Syria. "In Libya, we have shut down, but Iran and North Korea are as dangerous as they are because of the efforts of this man," she said.
