There was never a written agreement between Washington and Islamabad on the use of U.S. drones to kill suspected terrorists in Pakistan's lawless tribal belt, but officials had an "understanding," Pakistan's former spy chief said.
Pakistan will "strongly contest" two U.S lawsuits that link its spy chief and his agency to the deadly 2008 attacks in Mumbai, India, the government said Thursday.
The plaintiffs in two U.S. lawsuits accusing Pakistan's spy chief of nurturing terrorists involved in the 2008 Mumbai attacks are hoping for a historic outcome recalling the Lockerbie settlement, but they would have to overcome serious legal obstacles first, lawyers and experts say.
Pakistan's top spy agency denied Saturday that it helped unmask the CIA's station chief in Islamabad, dismissing speculation it was retaliating for a U.S. lawsuit linking the Pakistani intelligence chief to the 2008 attacks in Mumbai, India.
"The Americans had been asked to stop such [drone] attacks on a number of occasions, but it was easier to say 'no' to them in the beginning" than later, Gen. Pasha said.
"The drone attacks had their utility, but they represented a breach of national sovereignty," Gen. Pasha told the commission.
