Islamabad: Pakistan on Wednesday condemned a US drone strike in North Waziristan tribal region that killed six people.
“Pakistan condemns such strikes which are in disregard of our territorial sovereignty and international law,” Xinhua news agency quoted Pakistani Foreign Ministry’s statement as saying.
The statement added that the strike in North Waziristan resulted in a number of casualties.
“These strikes also generate distrust among the local populace. We reiterate our call for cessation of such strikes,” the statement said.
A US drone fired two missiles at a compound in Karwanda area of Datta Khel Tehsil, and some foreigners were among those killed. This is the second drone attack in the region in one month.
On August 6, an American spying aircraft killed at least seven suspected militants in Datta Khel area of North Waziristan.
