Islamabad, Nov. 3: Pakistan has termed the killing of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan chief Hakimullah Mehsud in a US drone strike in North Waziristan the ‘murder of peace’ in the region.
Pakistan also announced to review the ‘entire perspective’ of its cooperation with Washington in the war against terror.
According to the Daily Times, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar told a press conference in a forthright criticism of the US that Pakistan does not see this strike as an attack on a person, it is an attack on the peace process.
He added that Islamabad’s efforts have been ambushed. It was not even an ambush from the front.
He also questioned the timing of the attack on Mehsud, asking why did the US launch an attack on the eve of start of formal talks.
Nisar virtually begged the terrorists to keep patience and refrain from killing innocent people in revenge for the killing of their leader.(ANI)
