ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi has on Wednesday said that the US drone strike in Pakistan is an attack on country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Addressing the United Nations while taking part in a debate on Afghanistan situation, the ambassador said that US drone strike has disrupted the Afghan peace process and further complicated the situation in the region.
