ISLAMABAD: North Atlantic treaty organisation’s (NATO) resolute support mission (RSM), led by United States (US) army general John W. Nicholson Jr, conducted a drone strike on an Afghan refugee camp in Kurram agency on Wednesday, to which Pakistan responded, “US could have shared actionable intelligence so that appropriate action was taken against terrorists by our forces, within our territory;” an official statement said.

According to detail, Pakistan condemned the drone strike carried out by the RSM on Wednesday morning, and expressed dismay over time and again emphasis to US on letting our forces tackle menaces within our territory, but to no gain.

Pakistan has been stressing the need of early Afghan refugees’ repatriation, as their presence within the country helps Afghan terrorists to melt and morph among them.

“Such unilateral actions, as that of Wednesday, are detrimental to the spirit of cooperation between the two countries in the fight against terrorism,” official statement concluded.
