US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee member Congressman Alan Grayson has said that drone strikes in Pakistan could stop tomorrow if the country intended to do so, BBC Urdu reported.
“Had Pakistan wanted and stopped facilitating the US strikes, drone attacks on its territory could end tomorrow,” he said.
Moreover, he said Pakistan’s armed forces were capable of tackling militants and that in such a situation the US should not have blood on its hands.
He added that there were only a handful of militants in the country, whose numbers hardly ran into hundreds, whereas the strength of Pakistan’s military was more than a million.
Grayson was of the view that heirs of the innocent victims of drone attacks should receive compensation from the US.
