He said Pakistan was using all diplomatic channels to bring an end to the strikes that were damaging it’s efforts against militancy and terrorism.

“Voices are also being raised in the West against these illegal drone strikes,” Basit added.

He said Pakistan was taking the issue forcefully with the United States and hoped that the US would revisit its policy towards that end.

He said it was high time that the illegal use of drone attacks is stopped.

About the options available for stopping the drone attacks, the spokesman said we are waiting for the completion of the parliamentary process on the new terms of engagements with the US. In the guidelines of the parliament, he said we will move forward and take up the issue with the US.

To a question, he rejected the notion that any of Pakistan’s bases is being used for the drone strikes.

Rejecting existence of any joint mechanism between Islamabad and Washington on the drone strikes, the spokesman said the country’s sovereignty was non negotiable and any arrangement where sovereignty was compromised was not acceptable.
