MOSCOW, September 30 (RIA Novosti) - Allegations of Belvneshpromservis Co. trespassing the mass destruction weapon nonproliferation regime are all wrong, says Vladimir Grigoryev, Belarussian Ambassador to Russia.

"This is fiction, a fabricated fact. One sees such things only in a nightmare," he exclaimed at a news conference in Moscow.

Belvneshpromservis is figuring on a US-published black list of companies sanctions against which have been introduced on a US legal act of 2000, which bans exports to Iran of technologies, commodities and services that fail to comply with the nonproliferation regime for mass destruction weaponry and vehicles.

"Belarus does not possess any such technologies, and it is immoral to allege we are taking part in the project. That won't do," said the diplomat.

"This is like what Congressman McKeon was saying in Riga, and what a European Commission spokesman said on four Belarussian officials banned entry to Europe. These are all links in one chain, and we shall not be surprised if more links appear quite soon. All that is done to wall Belarus off from the world," stressed the ambassador.

The US Administration entered 14 companies and organizations on the list of companies in for sanctions, as of September 20. The black list includes Russia's Khazra Trading Co., Belarussian Belvneshpromservis, and the Ukrainian-based Regional Foreign Economic Association of Zaporozhye.

The information appeared in an instruction carried by the US Federal Register today. A total 23 companies have been blacklisted for today.
