ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has condemned the US drone strike near Miranshah, North Waziristan Agency, on Sunday, saying these unilateral strikes are a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
In a statement Foreign Office spokesman said Pakistan has repeatedly emphasised the importance of bringing an immediate end to drone strikes.
He said that 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 inter-state relations.
He said that 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.
