CIA papers reveal China's nuclear free pass to Pakistan

NEW DELHI: Recently declassified CIA files testify to the depth of the Pakistan-China military relationship built over decades and also highlights how Beijing was willing to risk its own nuclear cooperation with US to boost the nuclear ambitions of 'all weather friend' Pakistan.

In the files, the US notes that China did not ask Pakistan to open its nuclear installations to IAEA inspections, after inking a nuclear agreement with the latter. The text of the agreement is pretty anodyne, focusing on non-military nuclear technology, radio-isotopes, medical research and civilian power technology. By this, the US notes, China wanted to develop a nuclear export market in Pakistan in "nonsensitive" areas. This would "reassure" countries like US which were apprehensive about Pakistan's nuclear designs.

"We cannot rule out the possibility that China may feel it will be easier to cooperate clandestinely with Pakistan behind the smokescreen of IAEA-safe guarded cooperation activity in non-sensitive areas."

By 1983-84, it had become alarmingly clear to the US that the China-Pakistan nuclear cooperation went much deeper. In February 1983, a US congressional committee was informed by the CIA that the US had proof China and Pakistan were talking nuclear weapons manufacture. CIA also stated they knew China had handed over the design of a nuclear bomb tested by China in Lop Nor, which incidentally was its fourth nuclear test and during which, US believed, a "senior Pakistani official" was present.

The US suspected China had handed over enriched uranium to Pakistan as well. Basically it meant that China had not only handed over the design of the bomb to Pakistan, it had also given the necessary material

Yeh le tere abba chipkali ki kartoot CIA ne khol di.

Would you still claim that your missiles and nuclear weapons are Indigenous like India's. Porkistan can't even make a moped engine and claim they can make rocket engines for missiles and advanced nuclear weapons. It is all :bs::bs::bs:.

It is not CIA to tell us what is Chinese nuclear involvement in Pakistan. India knew it all along. That inside information was very cleverly gleamed out of Pakistani establishment by likes of Donal, Ek Tha Tiger and many more.

Even if India informed US and Briton about it, but they paid scanty attention to it. Reagan was hell bent on defeating Soviets in Afghanistan with Pakistani aid, hence it was alright with him.

But when it became very clear that Pakistan has built a bomb based on Dutch stolen technology that President Bush Senior allowed Pressler Amendment to be enacted to link aid to Pakistani desisted any further. It was ten years of aid ban that resulted in Pakistan being starved of military supplies and other hardware.

It was Bush Junior that removed the Pressler amendment after 9/11.
