Nawaz Sharif Lahore, May 30 (ANI): Former United States ambassador to Pakistan, Bill Milam, has rubbished Nawaz Sharif’s claim that the then US President Bill Clinton had offered him five billion dollars for shelving its plan of conducting the nuclear test in 1998.

In an interview to a private television channel, Milam said Clinton could not have made any such offer to Nawaz, as he would have had to get Congress’ approval for that, The Daily Times reports.

Milam added that Clinton’s key advisers also believed that it was impossible for the US President to have kept his promise of delivering such a huge amount. (ANI)
