Pakistan Condemns Resumption of Drone War

The resumption of U.S. drone strikes inside Pakistan are counterproductive and violate Pakistani sovereignty, Pakistan’s foreign office said on Thursday.
“Pakistan has a clear position on drone attacks [which have] a disadvantage over tactical benefits,” said the foreign office spokesman Abdul Basit in his weekly briefing at the Foreign Office. The spokesperson also said these attacks occur without Pakistani permission, violate their sovereignty, and would not be condoned.

U.S. drone attacks resumed on Tuesday of this week after being suspended in November after an unprovoked U.S. attack on a Pakistani military outpost killed 24 Pakistani soldiers and led to heightened tensions between the two countries. On Tuesday, the U.S. launched a drone attack that killed four unidentified individuals and injured several more.
