Imran Khan- led PTI calls for military action against drone attacks

Islamabad , Thu, 14 Jul 2011 ANI

Islamabad, July 14(ANI): The Pakistan Tehrik-e- Insaf (PTI) has said the United States-led drone attacks in the tribal areas were unacceptable and tantamount to state terrorism against Pakistani citizens and added that it was time for the government to order military action against such strikes. TI Vice-President for Policy Planning, National Security and Foreign Affairs Dr. Shireen Mazari regretted that during the past 24 hours, over 60 people had been killed in these drone attacks.


She welcomed the Pakistan military's decision to combat terrorism using national resources.


However, she pointed out that terrorism could be successfully combated with the help of a comprehensive national counter-terrorism policy embracing political, economic and military aspects of the problem.


"Unfortunately, there has been no effort to have a cohesive and coordinated counter-terrorism policy to date since the rulers have been busy fulfilling the US agenda and toeing the US unsuccessful and misnamed 'war on terror'. It is time to move beyond cheap rhetoric and prove one's resolve by deeds," the News quoted her, as saying.


"That the Pakistani state is continuing to be a party to the killing of its own people despite the direct political, diplomatic and military assault now launched on Pakistan itself by the US, is a shameful reflection of the inability of the Pakistani rulers to extricate themselves from the US web of destruction, which is rapidly targeting Pakistan on all fronts," she added.


"It is time Pakistan stopped giving a blank cheque to America to kill Pakistanis at will and destroy the country," she concluded. (ANI)
