Islamabad has denied Moscow’s allegations that it is in talks with Ukraine to transfer nuclear weapons technology.
Asim Iftikhar, Foreign Office Spokesperson, refuted the claims, saying that the Russian Senator’s baseless statement is alarming and undermines bilateral relations.
Furthermore, he claimed that Islamabad has demanded an explanation from Moscow. The shocking allegations surfaced after Russia stepped up its narrative in response to Kyiv’s alleged plans to launch a radioactive ‘dirty bomb.’
Earlier, Igor Morozov, a member of the Russian Federation Council’s Defence Committee, claimed that a Ukrainian delegation of experts visited Pakistan and discussed nuclear weapons technology.
The legislator made these claims during a press conference titled “Nuclear Provocations in Ukraine: Who Needs It?”
Morozov claimed that no one was unaware of Ukraine’s ability to construct a “dirty bomb.” However, he maintained that the main obstacle was a lack of funding.
It is worth noting that the Russian leader did not provide any evidence to back up his claims about Islamabad supplying munitions to Kyiv in preparation for war with Russia.
Also, when it comes to the aforementioned conflict, Islamabad has demonstrated balanced diplomacy, as evidenced by its provision of humanitarian aid to Kyiv without condemning Russia’s attack on the European state.
