In a concerted effort to fortify the global nonproliferation regime, the United States has taken decisive action to disrupt procurement networks aiding proliferation activities. Today, four entities have been designated pursuant to Executive Order 13382, which specifically targets proliferators of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery.


These designated entities include three based in the People's Republic of China and one in Belarus. They have been implicated in supplying missile-applicable items to Pakistan's ballistic missile programs, notably its long-range missile endeavors.


The entities subjected to designation are as follows: Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant, Xi’an Longde Technology Development Company Limited, Tianjin Creative Source International Trade Co Ltd, and Granpect Co. Ltd. Their involvement in activities or transactions that materially contribute to, or pose a risk of materially contributing to, the proliferation of WMD or their means of delivery, specifically to Pakistan, led to this decisive action.


The United States, in tandem with its global partners, remains resolute in its commitment to bolstering the nonproliferation regime. Through collaborative efforts, the aim is to deter and disrupt proliferation networks of WMD, wherever they may manifest.
