LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf (PTI) on Monday submitted a resolution in the Punjab Assembly calling for the stopping of drone attacks.

The resolution, submitted in the assembly secretariat by PTI leader Mian Aslam Iqbal, said US drone attacks were a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The resolution added that innocent civilians were dying in these attacks and demanded the federal government to abolish all agreements pertaining to drone attacks with the United States.

The PTI has a strong stance when it comes to US drone attacks in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata), which adjoins the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where the party has formed the government.

The party terms the attacks counter-productive and a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty.
