ISLAMABAD, (SANA) : Foreign Office spokesman Moazzam Ahmad Khan has said that Pakistan is considering various options to get drone strikes by the United States stopped as these constitute clear violation of its integrity and sovereignty.
Moazzam Ahmad Khan said during his weekly news briefing here on Friday that Pakistan is positive and is very clear that drone attacks are unproductive, illegal and violation of our sovereignty and integrity.
He said that the options in this connection could not be revealed now but Pakistan is seeking a bilateral solution of this issue.
To a question the Spokesman said that Pakistan has nothing to do with the operations of drones.
The Spokesman said that Afghanistan is a vast territorial country and has a number of neighbours. He said nobody will be allowed to use Pakistani land against any country.
He said Pakistan is not involved in any kind of attacks on NATO forces inside Afghanistan. He said Pakistan and Afghanistan are engaged in constructive matters to be addressed and we have a desire to address all issues mutually.
To a question, he said that the strategic dialogue between Pakistan and the United States are expected to resume this year.
To a question about the would-be publishing of a book by a US writer Richard Miniter about the killing of Osama Bin Ladin, the Spokesman said that let the book be published and we can not comment on speculations, as it is too early.
Referring to former Pakistan ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani’s comments for down grading Pak-US relationship, he said it is his personal point of view but the government’s stance is different.
The Spokesman made it clear that Pakistan is a very responsible nuclear country.
About the border incursions by the militants and attack on our posts near Afghanistan, the Spokesman asked the Afghan government to do something to stop them.
The spokesman said that Pakistan’s territory would not be allowed to be used against any country. He said we have a will and a determination that no militant would be allowed to use our territory for terrorism.
About a question that in Saudi Arabia the Pakistanis who visit for religious purposes are being jailed, the Spokesman said we are in contact with the Saudi authorities and soon a meeting would take place in this regard.
