ISLAMABAD: Speaking on the floor of the parliament yesterday Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said that Pakistan considers drone strikes in the tribal areas as violation of its sovereignty.
She said we repeatedly have raised our concerns on the drone strikes which are proving counter-productive. She said opinion is emerging in the entire world including the US against the drone attacks. The world is also raising concerns on the civilian casualties in the drone strikes.
About reports that Washington has prepared a new drone policy, the Foreign Minister said we have no clarification from the US in this regard. These are just media reports but we will take up this issue with Washington and its Ambassador to Pakistan.
