Special Assistant to PM on Foreign Affairs, Syed Tariq Fatemi says the US drone attack in Balochistan has cast negative impact on the peace and reconciliation process in Afghanistan .

In an interview, he described the attack as illegal and violation of Pakistan's sovereignty.

Tariq Fatemi said the drone strike has also put a question mark on the United States' intentions about peace and reconciliation process in Afghanistan .         

He said Pakistan believed that dialogue is the only option to ensure peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan , as peace in Afghanistan is also vital for peace in the region.     

About the Indian bid for membership of the Nuclear Supplier Group, Tariq Fatemi said the objective of non-proliferation cannot be negated with discriminatory approaches in the Non-Proliferation Treaty.     

He said as the NSG was created in reaction to the Indian nuclear tests, now offering NSG membership to India would give a negative signal on proliferation.
