Nawaz Sharif Lahore, Mar. 31 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said that the new U. S. administration was better than the previous one.
His statement came after US President Barack Obama announced new policy for Pakistan and Afghanistan last week.

“We are willing to address the concerns of all our allies and friends. I think they should also understand our problems. It has to be reciprocal,” Nawaz said.

The PML-N chief also called for an end to American drone attacks on tribal regions, which have led to civilian casualties and inflamed anti-American sentiment.

“Some of the policies followed by former US President George W. Bush have given rise to a lot of anti-American feeling in Pakistan. For example the drone attacks are affecting our relationship. The people of Pakistan have criticised them very severely. It damages the sovereignty of our country. On this issue the United States of America must move carefully,” The News quoted Sharif as saying. (ANI)
