USA Urged to Stop Military Operations in Pakistan

Islamabad, May 14 (Prensa Latina) The Pakistani Parliament on Saturday urged the United States to immediately stop the air raids in the country, and condemned the recent U.S. incursion to kill Al Qaida chief Osama bin Laden.

Both the demand and the condemnation are contained in a resolution unanimously approved by the two parliamentary chambers, after a long debate that concluded early today.

The text calls unacceptable the continuing attacks by U.S. drones in the tribal zones in northwest Pakistan, which have killed thousands of people since they started in 2004.

Were they to continue, the local government is recommended to prohibit NATO from using Pakistani roads to supply the troops deployed in Afghanistan.

Referring to the military operation by special U.S. troops on May 2 in Abbottabad city, the resolution affirms that the unilateral action violated national sovereignty.

The text also urges the executive to create an independent commission to thoroughly investigate the operation, determine responsibilities, and recommend measures to prevent similar events from happening again.
