PTI submits resolution against US drone strikes in Punjab Assembly

-

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf (PTI) on Monday submitted a resolution in the Punjab Assembly against the US drone strikes in tribal areas, describing it a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The PTI leader Mian Aslam Iqbal submitted the resolution in the assembly secretariat which says that innocent civilians were dying in these attacks and demanded the federal government to abolish all agreements pertaining to drone attacks with the United States.

The legendary cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan-led PTI has a strong stance when it comes to US drone attacks in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata), which adjoins the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where the party has formed the government.

The party terms the attacks counter-productive and a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty.
