In what could come as a big boast to conspiracy theorists' allegation of aliens' existence, UK's Ministry of Defence (MoD) might release the country's top secret on Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) sightings in the next few months.

There have been allegations that several countries around the world, especially developed countries like the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom etc have records of UFO sightings over the years but have been intentionally hiding from the public.

According to an exclusive report by Express, UFO sightings being recorded by the government dubbed as the "British X-Files" could be made public in the next eight months. It reported that UFO researchers have been fighting to "release of 18 top secret Ministry of Defence (MoD) files about UFO sightings from more than 30 years ago."

The government has assured on the eve of World UFO Day (2 July) that the MoD would release the secret files to the National Archives by March 2016 when Lord Black of Brentwood asked for an update through a Parliamentary question, reported the website.

"In relation to the 18 Ministry of Defence files on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) that have yet to be released to the public, what is the originating division of the file reference M9/18; what is the remit of that division in relation to UAP; and what is their latest estimate of when the 18 files will be passed to the National Archives, and then released to the public," asked Lord Black.

"The originating branch of file reference MO9/18 relates to ministers' private offices. The latest estimate of when the 18 files will be delivered to the National Archives is before March 2016. The National Archives will make the necessary judgement about when they release these files to the public," replied Defence Minister Earl Howe.

Alien hunters and conspiracy theorists are now hopeful that the files, which were stalled from being released in 2013, would prove the existence of UFOs and aliens. The UK government has released several older files on UFO in the past but the yet-to-be-released ones are expected to throw lots of light on evidence of extra-terrestrial life visiting the earth.
