Speaking to media outside the Lahore High Court, Ms Jahangir said Pakistan could only register its protest against drone strikes in its territory.

It’s noticeable that America’s approach isn’t right, but Pakistan also needs to review its foreign policy for its own interest, she remarked.

The rights activist took a jibe at committee formed for probe into Panama Papers revelations, saying ‘opposition may keep devising terms of references, while public must wait for another ‘drama’ in the offing.’

She underlined that lawyers were neither anyone’s agent nor they would launch any movement against Panama leaks.

Jahangir stated that keeping prime minister aside in the Panama leaks would make the issue meaningless.

U.S. President Barack Obama had confirmed that Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour had been killed in the drone strike, and the Pentagon said separately that Mansour was plotting attacks that posed “specific, imminent threats” to U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
