China on Tuesday denied providing parts for Iraq's atomic weapons program, dismissing an allegation that it had shipped specially configured aluminum tubing that might have been destined for Iraq.  


Beijing opposes the spread of weapons of mass destruction and strictly controls all such technologies, Foreign Ministry spokesman Kong Quan said. Kong was responding to information provided to The Associated Press last week by an international nuclear official.  


"It is purely a fabrication and not worthy of comment," Kong said of the allegation, according to SPA. (
