Islamabad: Pakistan has strongly condemns the US drone strike that took place in Miranshah, North Waziristan in early hours on Thursday. These strikes are a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
There is an across the board consensus in Pakistan that these drone strikes must end, said a statement of the FO here.
The Government of Pakistan has consistently maintained that drone strikes are counter-productive, entail loss of innocent civilian lives and have human rights and humanitarian implications. Such strikes also set dangerous precedents in the inter-state relations.
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.
