PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly has approved a resolution against US drone attacks in the tribal regions of the country.

The resolution was presented by by senior minister Bashir Bilour and demands that the US envoy to the country be summoned to the Foreign Office.

The resolution calls for an immediate end to the drone strikes, stating that they violate Pakistan's sovereignty and are counter-productive in fighting militancy. The resolution also demands that US should hand over drone technology to Pakistan.
