The report has cited Pakistani and US government documents in support of its claim. However, the Pakistani government has rejected these allegations.
A report has claimed that Pakistan sold weapons to America under an intelligence deal to supply them to Ukraine.
In exchange, the IMF provided Pakistan, which is currently experiencing an economic crisis, with a bailout package. The report’s assertion is supported by papers from the US and Pakistani governments. The Pakistani government has, however, denied these accusations.
What’s in the report
This article was released by the online investigative publication The Intercept. According to the source, Pakistan and America forged this agreement so they could exploit the Ukrainian army. The article claims that Pakistan was under pressure for this transaction from the United States. Let us inform you that the IMF has given Pakistan, which is experiencing a financial crisis, a three billion dollar bailout package. The study claims that Pakistan entered into this agreement under American coercion solely to receive this IMF rescue money. Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, a spokesman for the Pakistan Foreign Office, refuted the report’s assertions. Zahra Baloch referred to the accusations as unfounded and false.
Pakistan rejected the allegations
According to Baloch, Pakistan’s position in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine is to maintain a strictly neutral stance and has not given any nation any weapons or ammunition. For exporting weapons, Pakistan has severe regulations. It is interesting that Dmitry Kuleba, the foreign minister of Ukraine, visited Pakistan in July. Kuleba had dismissed the reports at the time that Pakistan had been providing Ukraine with weapons. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, a former Pakistani foreign minister, also denied similar accusations.
There were also rumors that Pakistan had opened an arms-selling company in Warsaw. A senior Ukrainian commander claimed that they had acquired weaponry from Pakistan in an interview with the BBC in April, but the Ukrainian government had refuted this. On February 24 of last year, hostilities between Russia and Ukraine erupted. Pakistan has been attempting to strike a balance between Russia and America ever since. But based on the most recent reports, it appears Pakistan has given in to American pressure.
