OIC urges NATO to avoid attacks on Pakistan


21:32, November 28, 2011

ISLAMABAD, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- The major organization of Islamic countries on Monday strongly condemned the recent NATO attacks against two Pakistani border posts which reportedly killed 24 Pakistani military personnel and left many others injured, according to its statement.

In a statement released by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on its website, the OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said that the attacks are indeed serious violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and are totally unacceptable.

He assured Pakistan of the continued solidarity of the OIC and expressed his expectation for the prevention of any recurrence of such incidents.

The Secretary General also urged NATO to avoid any action that could further complicate the already dire security situation in the region.

NATO fighter jets and helicopters struck two Pakistani border posts in Pakistan's northwest tribal area of Mohmand Agency which borders Afghanistan early Saturday morning, killing 24 Pakistani troops and injuring 13 others.

The attack sparked angry reaction in Pakistan and the government closed NATO supply line and asked the United States to vacate a strategic air base in the country's southwest Balochistan province.

NATO and the United States had expressed regret over the losses of lives in the attacks, but the Pakistani army Monday rejected their regrets and said the leadership would suggest more steps in relationship with NATO.
