ISLAMABAD: Reiterating his earlier statement, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that drone attacks are unacceptable, Express News reported on Tuesday.
Speaking at a luncheon for European Union’s (EU) Ambassadors in Islamabad, Nawaz said that with the EU’s collaboration and support, Pakistan’s economy could be restored.
He added that the government is involved in anti-terrorism efforts and it is important that a solution to terrorism be found.
The government is engaged in spreading awareness about the negative impact of drone attacks in Pakistan to the international community, the PM said.
His statement comes a day after his meeting with US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel in which the PM assured Hagel that ‘immediate action’ would be taken to resolve the problem of stalled military shipments due to be taken across the border into Afghanistan.
Hagel had warned the premier that it could be difficult to maintain political support in Washington for an aid programme that has sent billions of dollars to Islamabad if this was not done.
