ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has dispelled the impression that National Assembly interfered in Bangladesh’s internal affairs by adopting resolution against the execution of Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Quader Molla.

In her weekly briefing here on Friday‚ Foreign Office spokesperson Tasnim Aslam said whatever happened in Bangladesh was its internal matter, and that National Assembly did not interfere in their affairs.

She said Parliament is a supreme institution and passed resolution with an aim to forget the past and move forward.

Welcoming the UN General Assembly resolution against drone attacks‚ terming it a big step forward Tasnim Aslam said that the resolution reflects the international public opinion and also speaks of legality and illegality of the use of drones.

She reiterated Pakistan’s position on the drone attacks‚ saying these strikes violate sovereignty of the country and cause collateral damage.

The spokesperson said the next move is to approach the United Nations Human Rights Commission in Geneva against drone attacks. She said Pakistan will continue to build international opinion against drone attacks.

Replying to a question, Tasnim Aslam said no Pakistani pilgrim was killed in attacks in Iraq.
