ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office has expressed serious concern over the US drone attack which occurred in the North Waziristan Agency on Wednesday morning.

 

In a press release, the Foreign Office stated that the Government of Pakistan has consistently maintained that drone strikes are counter-productive, entail loss of innocent civilian lives, have human rights and humanitarian implications and violate the principles of national sovereignty, territorial integrity and international law.

 

A foreign news agency claimed that Pakistani Taliban commander Wali-ur-Rehman was killed in the drone strike, however this has been denied by the Taliban.

THIS IS EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLING WITHOUT DUE COURSE OF JUSTICE LOCALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY. IT IS INTERNATIONAL STATE TERRORISM

It hasn't been denied. It has yet to be confirmed or denied by the the Taliban whether or not Wali-ur-Rehman was killed.
