Pakistan not helping N. Korea with nukes

  |   Nov. 5, 2003 at 5:19 PM
SEOUL, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- Pakistan's president strongly denied Wednesday that his nation had exported materials to North Korea so it could use them to make nuclear weapons.

"The reality is that during the four years that I have been president I can say with full guarantee that no proliferation has ever taken place. There has been no defense collaboration with North Korea," President Pervez Musharraf said of accusations to the contrary.

"This is a baseless allegation."

Musharraf arrived in Seoul Tuesday for a three-day state visit at the invitation of President Roh Moo-hyun, the Korea Times reported. He was scheduled to hold a summit meeting with Roh Wednesday at Chong Wa Dae.
