America did not take action intentionally

As the New Jurcher Zeitung reported, the US administration learned of European firms supplying information and equipment to the mine’s nuclear proliferation network, yet President Jimmy Carter decided not to intervene directly because the US side relied on Pakistan to oppose the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. The US State Department took up the matter with the German and Swiss governments, but local officials were accused of turning a blind eye,

Recently secret US documents have revealed that nearly half a dozen companies in Germany and Switzerland were accused of supporting Pakistan’s nuclear weapons program. The report said that the three bomb attacks in 1981 were carried out in Germany and Switzerland just months after the failed US State Department intervention. After the bombings, other companies associated with Pakistan’s nuclear program received threatening calls from unknown persons.
