LAHORE: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday said that the United Nations (UN) will be requested to intervene for stopping US drone attacks in tribal areas of Pakistan bordering with Afghanistan, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to a press conference, Khan vowed to take the matter to the UN as it was in violation of its own charter.

Criticising the government’s role on the issue, the PTI chief sarcastically advised the rulers to hold back their offer of engaging Taliban in a dialogue as their tenure in the government will be over in mere three months time.

Khan claimed that the PTI will establish peace across the country including in the troubled area of Waziristan. He said that his party will bring the innocent people affected by the drone attacks to the Supreme Court to get them justice.

The PTI chief also vowed to initiate a signature movement against the attacks at global level.

Commenting on dual national parliamentarians’ issue, Khan said contesting elections with dual nationality was in violation of the constitution. His party will provide electoral tickets to those who only possess Pakistani nationality, he added.
