KP passes resolution calling on Obama to apologise for drone attack


PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly on Friday adopted a resolution against a US drone strike in Balochistan that hit a car last week.


The resolution was tabled by a Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) lawmaker Fakhr Alam Wazir and unanimously passed by the house.

The resolution termed the US drone strike an attack on Pakistan’s integrity and called on President Barrack Obama to tender an apology.

It also asked the federal government to lodge strong protest at diplomatic level. A US drone attack killed Mullah Mansour, chief of Afghan Taliban in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan last Saturday.

Islamabad has lodged a protest with the United States and termed the drone strike an attack on country’s sovereignty.
