Nawaz demands US to end drone strikes

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s newly elected Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday called on the US to end its campaign of drone attacks in the country’s tribal northwest.


Nawaz Sharif was elected as the 27th Prime Minister of Pakistan on Wednesday, becoming the first person in the country’s history to assume the office for a third time. He received 244 votes in the 342-seat parliament.

“We respect the sovereignty of others and they should also respect our sovereignty and independence. This campaign should come to an end,” Nawaz Sharif said in his first address since taking office.

Nawaz Sharif, who was deposed in a military coup in 1999, won the May 11 elections as part of his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party.
