    Pakistan transported nuclear material to North Korea with the full knowledge of the country's army.

    Pakistan-made Shaheen 1 missile

    When asked why he had taken sole responsibility for the nuclear scandal in 2004, Dr Khan said he had been persuaded that it was in the national interest.

    In return, he said, he had been promised complete freedom, but "those promises were not honoured".

    Dr Khan also said that he travelled to North Korea in 1999 with a Pakistani general to purchase shoulder-launched missiles.

    His wife this week went to the Islamabad High Court in a bid to end restrictions on her husband's movements.

    Dr Khan was pardoned by President Musharraf after admitting illegally transferring nuclear secrets to other countries including Libya, Iran and North Korea.

    But in recent weeks he has retracted his confession.
