Islamabad (Web Desk): Pakistan has sought clarification from Russia on a statement made by its lawmakers, claiming Pakistan is helping Ukraine to develop nuclear weapons.
The Foreign Office spokesperson Asim Iftikhar said that the statement made by Russian Senator Igor Morozov regarding Pakistan was “unfounded and baseless.”
“We are surprised by such an unfounded and baseless statement," Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman said.
He said that the senator’s statement was without any rationale and “entirely inconsistent” with the spirit of Pakistan-Russia relations.
A Russian news agency quoted Senator Igor Morozov as saying that Ukraine and Pakistan seek to develop nuclear weapons as the officials from the two countries discussed the technologies in this regard.
