Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has categorically stated that if he comes to power, he will order the Pakistan Air Force to shoot down US drones in the country`s airspace.
Imran made this statement in a television talk show, also attended by former U.S. diplomat Mary Ann Wright and a British journalist Lauren Booth. Lauren, who is the sister-in-law of Tony Blair, converted to Islam two years back.

The News quoted Imran, as saying that he does not fear any attack from the Taliban because his party has negotiated with the Taliban and they have assured security to his upcoming peace march.

He said the Pakistan Army had not stopped him from the march, and was optimistic about the positive results of his efforts.
