ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has strongly condemned the US drone strike that took place in North Waziristan on Friday evening.
Foreign Office spokesperson in a statement here on Friday said that 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”, he added.
He said that govt of Pakistan has consistently maintained that drone strikes are counter-productive, entail loss of innocent civilian lives and have human rights and humanitarian implications, adding, that such strikes also set dangerous precedents in the inter-state relations.
He noted with deep concern 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.
