Washington, Nov 17 (ANI): Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has reportedly urged Washington to provide the predator technology to Pakistan instead to enhance its ability to fight terrorism.

Zardari made this demand while expressing his disapproval of the US drone attacks on Pakistani areas along the Afghan border, reported the Daily Times.

He also voiced hope that the incoming Barack Obama administration would recognise Pakistans key anti-terror role as well as understand the fact that his country has been a victim of terrorism as well.

We think we need a new dialogue, and were hoping that the new US government will understand that Pakistan has done more than they recognise and was a victim of the same insurgency the US was fighting, the paper quoted him as saying. (ANI)
