This chapter discusses the political changes in Pakistan and Salam's participation. With his ties to Pakistan loosened, Salam turned his ambitions and political talents elsewhere. The United Nations was a natural target. After his introduction to the UN by Zafrullah Khan, his involvement in the Atoms for Peace programme in the mid-1950s and his subsequent involvement in the Pakistani delegation at the International Atomic Energy Authority, in 1964 he was appointed as one of the experts on the UN's Advisory Committee on the Application of Science and Technology, and in 1971-2 served as its Chairman.

Keywords:   Abdus Salam, United Nations, Pakistan, World War II, Zafrullah Khan
