Islamabad: The Government of Pakistan condemns in the strongest terms the US drone attacks in North Waziristan this morning.
2. Pakistan has consistently maintained that these illegal attacks are a violation of its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and are in contravention of international law. It is our considered view that the strategic disadvantages of such attacks far outweigh their tactical advantages, and are therefore, totally counterproductive.
