ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Foriegn Office has reacted over the issue of the US drone strike in Pakistan.

Foreign Office (FO) Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria on Thursday said that drone strikes are against Pakistan's sovereignty.

During the weekly news briefing, the spokesperson said that Pakistan's policy regarding drone strikes had always been clear, adding that such attacks are "unacceptable".

Officials said the drone was shot down after it had ventured "deep inside Pakistani airspace".
