FO Pakistan condemns the US drone strike in Shawal Area

Islamabad: Pakistan has strongly condemned the US drone strike that took place in Shawal Area in North Waziristan on the night of July 28 .These unilateral strikes are a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Pakistan has repeatedly emphasized the importance of bringing an immediate end to drone strikes.

The Government of Pakistan has consistently maintained that drone strikes are counterproductive, entail loss of innocent civilian lives and have human rights and humanitarian implications. Such strikes also set dangerous precedents in the interstate relations,said a statement of the FO here Monday.

These drone strikes have a negative impact on the mutual desire of both countries to forge a cordial and cooperative relationship and to ensure peace and stability in the region.
