With the number of drone strikes continuing in Pakistan,
Pakistan has made it clear both publicly and privately to the Untied States government that we are willing to take out high value terrorist targets on our own, and we welcome the technology and intelligence assistance that will give us the ability to succeed. President Obama once said that he would act if we weren’t willing and able. We certainly are willing, and with international support we will become even more able. I am the President of Pakistan and I cannot condone violations of our sovereignty, even when they are done by allies and friends. We would much prefer that the US share its intelligence and give us the weapons, drones and missiles that will allow us to take care of this problem on our own. President Obama has denied any such intentions to extend the use of drone attacks to Balochistan. These drone attacks are counter productive.
