Moscow, Feb 10 (ANI): Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said American drone strikes within Pakistan are illegal, and are creating more militants.
"Attacks by US drones on Pakistani territory are illegal and cannot be tolerated," the Daily Times quoted Khar, as saying.
She said the US attacks have promoted extremism in the region.
"Drones are not only completely illegal and unlawful and have no authorisation to be used within the domains of international law but even more importantly, they are counter-productive to the objective of getting this region rid of militancy, terrorism and extremism," Khar said.
"Because if one strike leads to getting you target number one or target number three today, you are creating five more targets or 10 more targets in the militancy that it breeds in the fodder that it gives to the militants to attract more people to join their ranks," she added.
She also refuted claims that Pakistani security forces maintain close contact with the Taliban and even sponsor them, saying that they were not even "worth a comment." (ANI)
