Islamabad, July 03, 2014 (PPI-OT): Pakistan has noted with concern recent media reports indicating that it is among the countries subject to surveillance by US government departments. The US Embassy in Islamabad was conveyed today that such an action against Pakistani government departments or other organizations, entities and individuals is not in accordance with international law and recognized diplomatic conduct.
The reference to a political party in Pakistan was surprising. The US side was further conveyed that surveillance was contrary to the spirit of friendly relations between our two countries. In the interest of friendly and cooperative ties, we have urged the US to stop such activities.
