Taliban warn Pakistani lawmakers over NATO supplies
Question of the Day
Opposition lawmakers have indicated they may not back the proposed new terms with the U.S.
“If the government wants the Parliament to provide guidance on certain issues and situations, then we are ready to, but the government has to convince us, because its track record regarding two previous resolutions proved to be very bad,” Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, the leader of the opposition in Parliament, said Saturday.
The drone strikes are unpopular among Pakistanis and long have been opposed publicly by the Pakistani army and government as a violation of the country’s sovereignty. They also maintain that the attacks fan support for militancy even as they kill insurgents.
The issue is muddied by the fact that, in private, the Pakistani army has approved at least some of the strikes and provided intelligence on them, raising questions over whether they technically violate the sovereignty of the country. American officials rarely talk about the program in public.
Associated Press writers Sebastian Abbot and Zarar Khan contributed to this report from Islamabad.
