Official Press Statement from Pakistan Green Party

The Pakistan Green Party demands that the US administration stop the drone attacks inside the Pakistani territory because nine hundred civilians have been killed and many more injured, including children and old people. In addition, these attacks have forced more than a million people to migrate from these areas to different parts of Pakistan. These people end up living in refugee camps in Peshawar and other cities without having any support from government of Pakistan or any international aid agency. This situation has created very difficult political problems in Pakistan. On one hand, Pakistan is paying a heavy cost to be a friend of Unites States of American in its War on Terror ,and on the other hand the American administration demands more. It is tragic that Pakistan is targeted by terrorist from Afghanistan while American forces are attacking it. The American administration is not strengthening the Pakistan government by these drone attacks; instead they create public resentment against both the Pakistan government and Americans.
Therefore we demand that the American government stop the drone attacks in Pakistan immediately and start relief and resettlement programs for those affected and compensate them through all ways and,We also demand that the international community start peace talks with all local forces in Pakistan and Afghanistan to find peaceful solutions to problems , especially to address the root causes of the problems. The US administration should treat all countries in the region equally and put political pressure on India to solve the Kashmir issues with Pakistan , a major cause of tension in region.

The US administration must provide unconditional funding, investing in the economic development of Pakistan which it has lost the aid it used to receive from the international community. It is clear that more support is needed in the social sector if the people of Pakistan are to be empowered.
