Pakistan on Monday rejected as ‘baseless’ and ‘fabricated’ the latest story by Intercept in which it was alleged that Pakistan had sold weapons to Ukraine to get the recent IMF bailout package.

Giving any other colour to these negotiations is disingenuous”, said the Spokeswoman at the Foreign Office when asked to comment on the Intercept story.
