US slaps sanctions on two Pak firms for nuke, missile-related activities

The United States today slapped sanctions on two Pakistani companies by placing them on the export entities list for activities related to nuclear and missile trade.

The two companies – Technology Links Pvt Ltd and Techcare Services FZ – have been placed under the Entity List by the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

In a federal notification, the US Department of Commerce said the entities added to the EAR list have been determined by the US government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the US.

The move comes days ahead of the visit of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pakistan.
