Washington , Nov 5 (ANI): Pakistan embassy in the US has reportedly said that there was no secret agreement achieved between the two countries regarding Predator bombings in Pakistan s tribal areas, as being reported in a section of the American press.

A portion of the US media had repeatedly carried reports recently that Islamabad and Washington had agreed to a secret pact, according to which the former would continue to publicly protest against the US drone strikes on its tribal areas, but privately would have no objection.

Reacting to such reports in the American press, a spokesman at the Pakistan embassy said that the understanding between the two countries was open and public, reported the Daily Times.

If the US comes in possession of any actionable intelligence, it is required to provide such intelligence to Pakistan , which alone would take the required action, he added. (ANI)
