Pakistan News: The poor condition of Pakistan is not hidden from anyone. To run the country he was forced to take loans. He has taken loans so much and so many times from the world’s financial institutions and rich countries that everyone has started avoiding him. Even IMF i.e. International Monetary Fund has not given loan to Pakistan easily. Meanwhile, information has come to light that Pakistan betrayed its friend Russia and sold arms to Ukraine to take loan from IMF. This has been revealed in a report.
Cash-strapped Pakistan secretly sold arms to the US for Ukraine’s use, which helped it get a crucial financial boost from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) earlier this year. In a report, this claim has been made on the basis of internal documents of Pakistan and America government. Online investigation website ‘Intercept’ reported that these weapons were sold for the purpose of supplying them to the Ukrainian army. This shows what is Pakistan’s involvement in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia?
Pakistan called the matter baseless
However, Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch on Monday rejected the report of the American non-profit news organization as ‘baseless and fabricated’. Also said that the country, which is suffering from cash crunch, provided weapons to America, so that it could get its support in making a deal of three billion US dollars with the IMF at the end of June and it could avoid default in payment. Pakistan has been struggling to balance relations with the US and Russia since the crisis between Russia and Ukraine broke out early last year.
Know what Pakistan said regarding talks with IMF?
‘Dawn News’ news channel quoted Baloch as saying, ‘There were successful negotiations between Pakistan and the IMF on ‘IMF Standby Agreement for Pakistan’ to implement difficult, but necessary economic reforms. Giving any other color to these talks is a deceitful move. Baloch said Pakistan has maintained a policy of “strict neutrality” in the dispute between the two countries and no arms or ammunition were provided to them in that regard. According to ‘Dawn’, during his visit to Pakistan in July, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba had also rejected similar reports that Islamabad was supplying arms to Ukraine.
