Sherry questions govt over alleged Mansour killing

Staff Reporter

Islamabad—Vice President PPP Senator Sherry Rehman called for a careful recalibration of Pakistan’s national security and foreign policy here today, asking the government to explain the delay by the Foreign Office to put out a clear statement on Pakistan’s position and the breach of sovereignty in a drone strike that allegedly killed Mullah Mansour.
The Taliban chief’s reported killing on May 21, 2016 in Pakistan’s territory has not been confirmed by the Foreign Office of Pakistan.
“Whether the identification leads to confirmation or not, the episode still poses a number of key questions that place Pakistan in the crosshairs of a dangerous regional crisis as well as foreign policy flashpoint, where the United States is openly challenging Pakistan’s lawful writ by crossing red lines to extend drone strike attacks into Balochistan,” noted Rehman.
