Pak Senators stage walkout over resumption of US drone attacks in country

Islamabad, Wed, 25 Jan 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Jan 25 (ANI): Senators from opposition parties in Pakistan reportedly walked out of the Senate on Tuesday against the resumption of drone attacks in the country's tribal areas.


Leader of the opposition Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri said the government and army had made no announcement about defending Pakistani territory against drone strikes, the Daily Times reports.


Insisting that the Senate should pass a resolution that would be presented in the United Nations (UN) to stop US aggression in Pakistan, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said that the White House should care about the voice of the people of Pakistan.


"This drone strikes is a direct hit by the US on the territory of Pakistan, which is not acceptable," Malik said.


Even though the strikes have soured ties with Pakistan, the US seems to be adamant with its policies of using drones to wipe out suspected militants from Pakistan.


Although Washington is trying hard to bridge the gap between both the allies, it is still carrying out drone attacks in the Asian country.


Just two days back, a US drone fired missiles into a vehicle, killing four militants in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal region on Monday. The attack took place at Degan village of North Waziristan.


Following the attack, Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan urged the United States to stop drone attacks in his country because many innocent people were being killed in the process.


And this 'collateral damage' "creates more Jihadis than it kills", Khan said, adding that military activities in the region should be stopped if Washington wanted to engage the Taliban in meaningful peace talks.


"One cannot talk and be at war at the same time," he added. (ANI)
