Pakistan Told US to Leave Shamsi Drone Base

• http://news.antiwar.com/
 

Pakistan’s Defense Minister Chaudhry Mukhtar has confirmed today that the Pakistani government has ordered the United States to leave the Shamsi Air Base, an air base in Balochistan from which the US had been launching drone strikes.

The move comes as repeated Pakistani demands for the US to stop launching unilateral drone attacks have fallen on deaf ears, and in the wake of repeated escalations of the strikes. The Shamsi Air Base has been under the operational control of the United Arab Emirates since the 1990s.
