Pak trying to secure drone technology from US: Gilani

PTI

Demanding an end to the American drone attacks in the restive tribal belt, Premier Yousuf Raza Gilani has said Pakistan was trying to secure the spy plane technology from the US and seeking enhanced intelligence- sharing so that it can act on its own against militants.

Gilani raised the issue of drone strikes with a visiting Congressional delegation led by Speaker of the US House of Representatives, John Boehner, and said American lawmakers should influence the Obama administration to agree on a joint strategy under which drone technology could be transferred to Pakistan.

Addressing the National Assembly or lower house of Parliament after his meeting with Boehner yesterday, Gilani said he had told the US delegation about growing unrest among the public due to the missile strikes by the CIA-operated spy planes.
