Pakistan's MP condemns US bombing in tribal region
Islamabad, June 13 -- Former Pakistani Interior Minister and member of the National Assembly Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao has strongly condemned the bombing by US-Led forces in the tribal region, calling it a brutal act against the security and sovereignty of Pakistan.

At least 11 Pakistani soldiers were killed when the American planes rained bombs at a Pakistani check post in the tribal region of Mohmand Agency.

Sherpao also the Chairman of Pakistan People's Party (Sherpao) said that such attacks from the US-led forces on Pakistan's territory were absolutely contradictory to the international laws and treaties being total intrusion into the country's geographical and sovereign limits.

He said that apathy shown by the US-led forces over the loud protests made by the government and people of Pakistan could be judged from the fact that there were always more such attacks.

He said that the Government of Pakistan must not show weakness over such callousness but should take concrete steps to halt this aggression.

"Intruding into Pakistani soil without taking its government into confidence and targeting innocent citizens and security forces has shocked the nation with the feeling of indignation."

"The attack on Pakistan's security force is unprecedented and on a massive scale", he remarked. Sherpao added that Pakistan is playing a pivotal role in the war against terrorism and became a victim in the course of countering.

He said that such target attacks through UAV's and heavy artillery have aggravated the law and order situation in the region and if this continued it would result in creating rifts within the Allied Forces which could negatively affect the current war against terrorism.

Sherpao expressed apprehension that if public opinion turned against the support extended to the US-led Coalition Forces in the war against terrorism then US might lose its strongest ally and partner in this venture.
