The re­port pre­sented to the Congress men­tions that Pak­istan par­tic­i­pated, de­vel­oped, and de­liv­ered a se­ries of tech­ni­cal train­ings to re­spon­si­ble gov­ern­ment li­cens­ing and en­force­ment of­fi­cials for the proper iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of dual-use com­modi­ties that could be used to cre­ate WMDs and/or their de­liv­ery sys­tems.
