Israel Denies Cooperation in Indian Nuclear Tests

(Communicated by the Foreign Ministry Spokesman)
June 18, 1998

In response to journalists’ questions on the interview by Ms. Orly Azulai-Katz with the Foreign Minister of Pakistan, Israel absolutely denies any cooperation in the Indian nuclear test.

Israel has always aspired to establish diplomatic relations with every country, regardless of religion, geographic location or political affiliation.

For Israel, the fact that Pakistan is a Muslim state does not constitute any obstacle for the establishment of diplomatic relations. When Pakistan will agree, it will find Israel ready.
