Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff tells visiting US advisor on National Security that Washington should put an end to drone attacks in his country.

During a meeting on Friday with US advisor on National Security James Jones at Pakistan’s army headquarters in Rawalpindi, Gen Ashfaq Kayani said that the drone attacks must be halted immediately.
