Pakistan Rejects The Intercept Story: FO Spokesperson Calls The Story Baseless, Fabricated

The spokesperson of Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch has rejected the latest intercept story alleging sale of Pakistani weapons to Ukraine to get IMF bailout package for Pakistan.

The spokesperson, Ministry Of Foreign Affairs called the story baseless and fabricated.

She added that the IMF standby arrangement for Pakistan was successfully negotiated between Pakistan and the IMF to implement difficult but essential economic reforms. Giving any other colour to these negotiations is disingenuous.

She maintained that Pakistan maintains a policy of strict neutrality in the dispute between Ukraine and Russia and in that context, does not provide any arms and ammunition to them.

She highlighted that Pakistan’s defense exports are always accompanied with strict end user requirements.
