No secret agreement with US over drones: Pak MoD
Peshawar: Pakistan’s Ministry of Defence through an affidavit submitted in the Peshawar High Court (PHC) has claimed that neither the federal government nor the top brass of the armed forces have inked any secret agreement with the United States to allow drone attacks in the tribal areas.
Deputy Attorney General (DAG), Muhammad Iqbal Mohmand, who submitted the reply of the Ministry of Defence in the division bench, said the US started the drone strikes during former president Pervez Musharraf`s rule and the court should summon him and enquire about any verbal or written deal on drone strikes with the US, reports The News.
The court has already given 15 days to Musharraf`s lawyer Mauzzam Butt to get the power of attorney from him to submit his written reply about the drone strikes.
