Drone strikes threat to sovereignty and security of the country: Army Chief 

Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif says US drone strikes are regrettable and must stop as they are a threat to the sovereignty and security of the country. He was speaking informally to the media at a reception after attending President Mamnoon Hussain’s address to a joint session of Parliament. China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is a national project and must be completed at any cost. He said the security situation in Karachi and Balochistan is improving. Border management with Afghanistan is also improving, and now the responsibility lies with Afghanistan as there are fewer check posts on the other side. Army Chief, said, “Operation Zarb-e-Azb is underway across the country and failure is not an option for us. Successes gained so far in the operation would be consolidated. We have to maintain the victories of Operation Zarb-i-Azb. Terrorists will not be allowed to re-enter into areas cleared in South Waziristan and North Waziristan.”
