WASHINGTON - Pakistan has not agreed to American drone strikes on its territory in exchange for the US apology over the Salala attacks, Ambassador Sherry Rehman has said, while calling CIA’s Predator campaign “counterproductive” and a violation of international law.“We have not agreed on anything. Infact, those conversations are yet to happen. The apology has opened the space for an opportunity where we can have constructive conversations that might be to the satisfaction of both sides”, Sherry Rehman said on an American news channel.“Right now, we have given no go-ahead at all,” she told CNN’s Christiana Amanpour in an interview.Ambassador Rehman reiterated serious concerns the Pakistani people and Islamabad have over drone strikes on its territory.“We consider (drone attacks) as counterproductive to all our goals in the sense that it radicalises foot soldiers, tribes and entire villages in our region. And what we see, really, is that increasingly Pakistan is feared as a predatory footprint,” the Pakistani envoy said.“The concerns over drones can’t just be brushed aside,” she said.She drew attention to the need for acknowledgement of Pakistan’s huge sacrifices and successes in the fight against terror. “We need to understand that certainly Pakistan is looking for some amount of strategic sympathy in the losses we have incurred over the last 10 years. We didn’t have more than one suicide bombing before 2001,” Ambassador said. “While it may be seen as a tool that is absolutely precise and reduces collateral damage, I think that it is, it has far outweighed its, the damage it does really doesn’t outweigh its benefits,” she further said.“It is also seen as predatory. It is seen as against the law. And it continues to challenge a relationship that can actually accomplish a lot more on the ground than we are doing today in eliminating terrorism,” she added. When anchorperson pointedly asked the Ambassador if the US was violating international law by conducting drone strikes on Pakistani territory, Sherry responded:“This is something that Pakistan has consistently said.”She also pointed out the need to bridge the lingering trust deficit between the two countries. Regarding Shakeel Afridi, the Pakistani doctor employed by the CIA in hunt for Osama bin Laden before the al Qaeda chief’s death in an American cross-border operation last year, Sherry said the doctor “had no knowledge that the goal that he was working for — he knew he was contracting with a foreign intelligence agency, but he had no knowledge that he was seeking to trace Osama bin Laden.”The envoy said Dr Afridi was contracting with many terrorist outfits.
