Pakistan Denies Saudi Nuclear Sale
Fri Jun 5, 2015 15:28:51

Pakistan's foreign secretary on Thursday hotly denied his country could sell Saudi Arabia an "off-the-shelf" nuclear weapon, after days of high-level talks in Washington.

After meetings at the White House, Pentagon and State Department, Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry described the suggestions Pakistan could sell a weapon as "unfounded, baseless and untrue."

"Pakistan's nuclear program has nothing to do with any other country," he told reporters. "This is a deterrence that we develop in response to a threat perception that we have from our east. That's it."

"Pakistan is not talking to Saudi Arabia on nuclear issues, period."
