Pak ruling parties ask US to stop drone attacks

Leaders of the ruling coalition parties in Pakistan have expressed their anger towards terrorists and also on the violation of Pakistani territory by the United States.
Leaders of the Pakistan People's Party, Muttahidda Qaumi Movement and the Awami National Party said on Monday that the sovereignty of Pakistani territory should be observed, while strongly condemning the terrorists who have destroyed Pakistan.
"We have a clear position that attacks in Pakistani territory must be stopped," People's Study Circle Chief and former federal minister Professor ND Khan stated.
Khan said that he has no information about the source of the US Senate's Subcommittee on Intelligence's statement that was printed in Pakistani newspapers. However, he said that he had read a report that even the Pentagon was unaware of the drone attacks."One thing is clear that drone attacks were neither in the interest of Pakistan nor the interest of the US," he asserted.
"The Pakistani parliament has unanimously resolved against such attacks and it will not help the US in the war on terror," the Daily Times quoted him, as saying.
