Islamabad, Oct 6 (ANI): Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that he has conveyed the country's concerns over increasing drone strikes in the tribal Areas to senior American officials.

Malik pointed out that that there are reservations among the two sides despite the fact that both have been victims of terrorism and have been fighting common enemy along the Afghan border.

"We have a common enemy and we must have a common strategy to fight this enemy... Pakistan is committed with the international community in this fight... and we will hit them hard," the Daily Times quoted Malik, as saying.

"Our side has conveyed our concerns regarding drone attacks - the people of Pakistan have been voicing this and we hope that this voice of the people of Pakistan will be heard," he added.

According to the report, Malik's remarks came after a meeting with US Special envoy Marc Grossman.

Malik and Grossman also discussed the issue of combating improvised explosives devices (IEDs), the report said.

According to the report, Grossman recognised sacrifices Pakistan has made in fighting terrorism.

"Americans recognise who are victims of terrorism... so many Pakistanis have lost their lives, so many have given their lives fighting terrorism so this issue of counterterrorism is very important between the United States and Pakistan," Grossman said. (ANI)
