Islamabad, September 18, 2023 (PPI-OT): Pakistan has categorically said that it 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.
Responding to media queries on the latest Intercept story-alleging sale of Pakistani weapons to Ukraine to get IMF bailout package for Pakistan, the Spokesperson, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, rejected the story as baseless and fabricated.
Ina a statement today, she said the IMF Standby Arrangement for Pakistan was successfully negotiated between Pakistan and the IMF to implement difficult but essential economic reforms. The spokesperson said giving any other colour to these negotiations is disingenuous. Pakistan's defense exports are always accompanied with strict end user requirements.
