  Free Oil And Centrifuges
via Hindustan Times:
Saudi Arabia has declined Pakistan's request to resume supply of free crude oil worth two billion dollars under the Special Financing Arrangement, a Pakistani official said.
The request to Saudi King for SFA was made in the back drop of growing Pakistan trade deficit which has already increased by over 132 per cent to 5.6 billion dollars during first six months of the current fiscal year compared with 2.4 billion dollars of the same period last year.

The two countries have signed five agreements mostly on higher and technical education during the King's visit but no accord was reached on energy security.

via GlobalSecurity:
In early March 2005, Pakistan acknowledged A. Q. Khan had provided centrifuges to Iran, though it denied having had any knowledge of the transactions.
Guess there is only one country in the world which wants a billion dollar of free oil/year from a Sunni power while selling nuclear tech to its Shia rival all the while receiving billions of dollars worth of military aid from its Superpower enemy. It is obvious that such trichery cannot last forever.
