Islamabad: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has urged the United States to stop drone attacks in his country because many innocent people are being killed in the process.

The Dawn quoted Khan as saying that each bomb that killed terrorists also killed many people who might be related to the terrorists, but were not involved in terrorism.

And this ‘collateral damage’ “creates more jihadis than it kills”, he added.

Khan further said that military activities in the region should be stopped if Washington wanted to engage the Taliban in meaningful peace talks.

“One cannot talk and be at war at the same time,” he added.
