The PML-N President Muhammad Nawaz Sharif expresses serious concern at the recent drone attack

The PML-N President Mr. Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has expressed his serious concern and deep disappointment at the recent drone attack, carried out by the United States on Pakistan territory.

The drone attack was not only a violation of the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, but also an action that has been declared as a violation of International Law and the UN Charter.

Mr Nawaz Sharif’s sentiments were conveyed to the US Charge d’ Affairs, Ambassador Richard Hoagland by a close aide of the PML-N President, who stressed in his conversation with the US diplomat that the drone attack, coming within days of President Obama’s “crossroads” speech was highly regrettable, particularly as the President had spoken of initiating a new policy that would ensure greater exercise of care and caution in the use of this technology.

Mr Nawaz Sharif’s aide also pointed out that meaningful consultations and close cooperation between the two countries should be the desired course of action, rather than unilateral measures.
