Yousuf Raza Gilani
Islamabad, Oct 23: During a meeting with Diplomatic Correspondents Association of Pakistan, Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani for the first time on Oct 23 claimed that permission to operate US drones inside Pakistan was given by the previous regime of President Pervez Musharraf.

"The permission had been given much earlier for reconnaissance and surveillance flights by spy planes and it was never given for attacks," stated Gilani.

Gilani also said that the US should transfer drone technology to Pakistan or it should share credible and actionable intelligence so that the Pakistani military can take action against the militants.
