US places sanctions on Pakistan

The United States last week announced that it was imposing sanctions on Pakistani companies for alleged links to nuclear trade, reports Voice of America.

A statement released by Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said,

“Pakistan believes that there should be no undue restrictions on the access to dual-use items and technologies for peaceful and legitimate purposes. Pakistan has always been transparent and willing to engage with the suppliers of the dual-use items.”

The list of banned entities contains companies that the US determined to be “acting contrary to the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States.”
