ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office (FO) summoned a senior US diplomat and protested against the US drone strikes in the country, Express News reported on Thursday.
The FO stated that drone strikes are illegal and are against international laws.
There has been a dramatic increase in US drone strikes in Pakistan since May, this year.
At least nine suspected militants were killed on August 22, when US drones targeted a vehicle in the Sheen Khwar area on the outskirts of Humzonee village, around four kilometres from Miramshah.
Pakistan has repeatedly called for an end to the strikes, calling them counter productive.
It was recently reported by website Bloomberg – which quoted two US officials – that US President Barack Obama has ordered a “sharp increase” in drone strikes in Pakistan’s tribal area.
