Pakistan on Tuesday said it was ready to work with the United States to resolve the alleged Chinese oil deal.
Pakistan is an oil exporter but the US is concerned about the impact the $100 billion oil deal could have on its economy.
The deal was signed last year and was widely seen as an attempt to boost Pakistan’s economy.
Pakistan says it does not have the means to investigate the deal.
It is seeking to establish the facts behind the $1.6 billion oil-for-gold deal.
The United States has refused to release the details of the deal, citing US laws.
“I am ready to make an arrangement with the US to bring out the truth and bring the truth out about this deal,” Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said in a statement.
Pakistan has a history of working with Washington on matters relating to oil.
In 2007, Washington granted Pakistan $1 billion in financial aid.
The country has since increased its oil production from an average of about 400,000 barrels per day to about 1.4 million barrels per week.
The Pakistani government has said that this was due to the development of its own shale oil resources.
