Zardari calls for end to drone strikes

September 15, 2012

President Asif Ali Zardari on Saturday reiterated demand for ending US drone attacks on militants in its tribal areas and called for removing a “trust deficit” with the United States.

Mr Zardari’s remarks came during talks with US special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan Marc Grossman.

“They discussed bilateral relations, the fight against militancy, the regional situation, drug trafficking and drone attacks,” presidential spokesman Senator Farhatullah Babar told reporters.—AFP
