PTI ‘Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’, Pakistan’s 3rd largest political party have been protesting against the US drone strikes at the tribal areas of Pakistan. PTI, who have provincial control in KPK, the province bordering Afghanistan, have acted by stopping NATO supply through Pakistan for the previous week.
Imran Khan the leader of PTI has accused Nawaz Sharif’s Government of double standards on the issue and called for the blocking of supply routes through Pakistan for NATO troops in Afghanistan.
He said, “These missile strikes violate international laws. We do not want a war with America but we are protesting against the cruel policies of America.”
In response, the US military has suspended shipments of equipment out of Afghanistan through the Torkham border crossing into Khayber Pakhtunkhawa.
The Pakistani Government signed a deal with the US in July last year allowing NATO convoys to transit through Pakistan until the end of 2015.
