US drone strike kills four in SW

USPESHAWAR: Pakistan has strongly condemned a US drone strike in South Waziristan that killed at least four suspected militants and injured several others on Thursday .

The sources also claimed that an Arab national identified by the name of Adil has been killed in the strike that was carried out in Birmal Tehsil of South Waziristan.

These details could not be independently verified as the media’s access to the troubled region is restricted. Speaking at the press briefing, Aslam said Pakistan has always taken up the issue of drone strikes with the US administration at every level because these attacks are also a violation of international laws.

Responding to a question, she said the recent visit by Iranian deputy foreign minister was successful and that Pakistan and Iran had productive discussion on a wide range of issues.

When her attention was drawn to an International crises group report about Pakistan’s foreign policy, she termed it baseless and said all relevant institutions are consulted with regards to its formulation. Agencies
