ISLAMABAD, (SANA): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has expressed his serious concern and deep disappointment at the recent drone attack, carried out by the United States on Pakistan territory.
Nawaz Sharif said that drone attack was not only a violation of the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, but also an action that has been declared as a violation of International Law and the UN Charter.
Nawaz Sharif’s sentiments were conveyed to the US Charge d’ Affairs, Ambassador Richard Hoagland by a close aide of the PML-N President, who stressed in his conversation with the US diplomat that the drone attack, coming within days of President Obama’s “crossroads” speech was highly regrettable, particularly as the President had spoken of initiating a new policy that would ensure greater exercise of care and caution in the use of this technology.
Nawaz Sharif’s aide also pointed out that meaningful consultations and close cooperation between the two countries should be the desired course of action, rather than unilateral measures. It is worth mentioning here that top Taliban leader Waliur Rehman along with six other aides was killed in the Chashma Pul area of Miranshah on Wednesday in US drone strike.
It is also worth mentioning here that TTP spokesman on Thursday announced to end peace talks with Pakistani government after the death of Waliur Rehman in US drone strike.
