The United States has sanctioned three entities in China and one in Belarus for allegedly supplying ballistic missile items to Pakistan, the State Department said in a release on Friday.

“Today, we are designating four entities pursuant to Executive Order 13382, which targets proliferators of weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery. These entities – three based in the People’s Republic of China and one in Belarus – have supplied missile‐applicable items to Pakistan’s ballistic missile programs, including its long-range missile program,” said State Department Spokesman Matthew Miller in the release.

The sanctions target the Belarus-based Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant along with China (PRC)-based Xi’an Longde Technology Development Company Limited, Tianjin Creative Source International Trade Co Ltd and Granpect Company Limited, Miller said.
