US asks Pakistan to halt nuclear transfer to Saudis in respect of talks with Iran

Trapped in a paradox, the Obama administration asks Pakistan to hold back its nuclear arms transfer to Saudi Arabia to avoid upsetting the six-power nuclear talks with Iran. This is hugely ironic. Washington seeks to curb the nuclear race triggered by its own acquiescence to Iran’s price for diplomacy – recognizing its right to enrich uranium. The Pakistani-Saudi nuclear deal is one outcome of Obama’s inconsistent regional policies. Islamabad’s response is revealed in the coming issue of DEBKA Weekly out Friday, along with striking developments on Iran, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and al Qaeda.  Don't miss this exciting issue. Subscribe here to DEBKA Weekly.
