Pakistan s Interior Minister, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said on yesterday that promises given by the United States couldn’t be trusted. Talking with media, Chaudhry Nisar said he was speechless on how Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz thought the US assurance over drone attacks.
The interior minister asked how anybody could call the US a buddy of Pakistan after the recent drone attacks. “Actions have made it clear that the US neither wants peace in Pakistan nor talks with the Taliban.”
During a briefing to the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz said that the United States had assured Pakistan that no drone attacks would be done during the peace discussions with the Taliban. A day after the briefing, the US has done a drone attack targeting a seminary in Hangu, the 1st in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Six persons were killed in the attack.
