Pakistan registers strong protest against drone strikes

- July 03, 2013 - Updated 1215 PKT - From Web Edition

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday lodged a strong protest against the recent drone strikes in North Waziristan that killed 18 persons, and demanded to end them on immediate basis, Geo News reported Wednesday.


According to a statement issued by the Foreign Office, these strikes are a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.


Pakistan has repeatedly emphasized the importance of bringing an immediate end to drone strikes, the Foreign Ministry spokesman said in the statement.


“The Government of Pakistan has consistently maintained that drone strikes are counter-productive, entail loss of innocent civilian lives and have human rights and humanitarian implications,” he said.


The spokesman said the US 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.


It may be mentioned that an unmanned US drone fired missiles in North Waziristan, killing 18 people.


The drone attacked a residential compound and a vehicle in Danday Darpa Khel area of the Nroth Waziristan Agency that borders war-stricken Afghanistan.
