ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on Monday in condemnation to the US drone strike that had killed two suspected militants in Mir Ali Tehsil of North Waziristan tribal region on July 13.

These unilateral strikes are a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, the statement said adding that, Pakistan has repeatedly emphasised 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 and that such strikes also set dangerous precedents in the inter-state relations.

The statement further said that 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.

The easiest thing is to issue a statement and then wait for another attack & have another statement. Before election it was Lion and now it is CAT...

Oh please stop this meaningless and shameful condemnation. Pakistan's Soverignty is being repeatedly violated by our so called friend and those in power who have taken oath to defend and protect the constitution of this nuclear country can do nothing other than give out these undignified statements!!! Shame shame shame

Pakistan is being wronged by my country and my President. Many of us in America have been shocked by these continued strikes. What right have we to bomb your country? None at all. This is a blatant and immoral use of power. I must apologize for my countries behavior. Please know you have many American citizens on your side in this dispute.

Condemning does not do justice to the lives of the innocent killed.. The Pakistani Government should make the US government stop this brutal operation within the boundaries of the Islamic Republic..
