Pakistan protests against drone strike in Miranshah

(2013-07-03)

The Government of Pakistan strongly condemns the US drone strike that took place in Miranshah, North Waziristan on 03 July 2013. These strikes are a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Pakistan has repeatedly emphasized the importance of bringing an immediate end to drone strikes.

The Government of Pakistan has consistently maintained that drone strikes are counter-productive, entail loss of innocent civilian lives and have human rights and humanitarian implications.

These drone strikes have a negative impact on the mutual desire of both countries to forge a cordial and cooperative relationship and to ensure peace and stability in the region.
