ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office has expressed serious concern over the US drone attack which occurred in the North Waziristan Agency on Wednesday morning.

In a press release, the Foreign Office stated that the Government of Pakistan has consistently maintained that drone strikes are counter-productive, entail loss of innocent civilian lives, have human rights and humanitarian implications and violate the principles of national sovereignty, territorial integrity and international law.

A foreign news agency claimed that Pakistani Taliban commander Wali-ur-Rehman was killed in the drone strike, however this has been denied by the Taliban.
