Nawaz condemns US drone strike in Pakistan

Nawaz Sharif

Pakistan, Islamabad News : Pakistan’s incoming prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday condemned the latest US drone strike in the country’s lawless tribal belt which killed the Taliban’s deputy chief.

“The 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,” said a statement issued by the media cell of Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

The Pakistani Taliban on Thursday withdrew their offer of peace talks with the government after confirming the death of their second in command in the US drone strike.

Waliur Rehman was killed when an unmanned US aircraft attacked a house in North Waziristan tribal district, a Taliban and al Qaeda haven on the Afghan border, early on Wednesday.

Wednesday’s attack was the first since Pakistan’s May 11 general election, won by the PML-N.

The statement said a close aide of Nawaz Sharif on Friday met with US charge d’affaires Richard Hoagland and conveyed Sharif’s sentiments on the latest strike. Agencies
