China denies complicity in Pak’s nuclear, missile programme

Questioning a UK think-tank report, alleging its complicity in Pakistan's nuclear and missile programmes, China on Wednesday said it has a world class "catch all" control system to curb proliferation of proscribed technologies.

"We have seen this report," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Lu Kang said, while replying to a question on the report titled 'Pakistan's strategic nuclear and missile industries,' prepared by Project Alpha at King's College, London which has alleged that Pakistan has procured supplies from China for its nuclear and missile programmes.

"What is mentioned in this report sounds so true but it doesn't hold water because it evades a fundamental question that is whether all the exports China made to Pakistan violates its legal and international obligations," Lu said.

The report identified China as the most important supplier of all forms of goods to Pakistan's nuclear and missile programmes and most procurements from China are "probably from unwitting private suppliers".
