Zardari Government Turns Down Uranium Deal For Pakistan

The Zardari government cited budgetary constraints to refuse uranium from Kazakhstan. But the real story is that the government has accepted aid in exchange for what appears to be a freeze on Pakistan’s advanced nuclear and strategic programs.  These were Washington’s conditions. And it is part of a wider pattern.

Some of the points of the deal that have been highlighted are:-

  1. Transit right to India for free.
  2. American ‘supervision’ over Pak Nukes.
  3. Sharing of sites where nukes are kept.
  4. Pakistan’s enriched uranium will go to America.
  5. Cut money for nuclear and missile programs.
  6. Tell Kazakhstan we don’t have money and let India get the Uranium deal.
  7. Rumors about cutting funds for JF-17 thunder project.

Are they putting Pakistan up for sale?
