“The US drone strikes have no consent from the Government of Pakistan, no transparency in their choice of targets and no legality in this conflict.”- this was the damning verdict from British MEP, Sajjad Karim, after the European Parliament’s high level hearing on US drone strikes in Pakistan.

Pressure has been mounting daily against Barack Obama’s excessive use of drones and today’s event was highly critical of the American President’s ‘War on Terror’, which has seen drone strikes take place every four days during the President’s first two years in power.

Klausymą, kuris pasirodė esąs labai populiarus, pirmininkauja Europos Parlamento narys Sajjad Karim, konservatorių teisės reikalų atstovas. Kiti kalbėtojai:

– Pakistan’s Ambassador to the EU, H.E. Munawar Bhatti;
– Liberal Democrat European Spokeswoman on Justice and Human Rights, Baroness Sarah Ludford MEP
– Deputy Director of international charity Reprieve, Hilary Stauffer;
– Researcher from Amnesty International, Mustafa Qadri

Sajjad Karim pirmininkas Pakistano draugų "grupę, kuri organizuotų posėdyje kalbėjo po įvykio. Jis pasakė:

“Today’s hearing in the European Parliament raises further questions of the legality and morality of American drone strikes in Pakistan.

“US drone killings in Pakistan casts an even darker shadow with the Pakistani government explicitly stating that they did not give consent for the attacks.

“The Ambassador of Pakistan clearly stated the position of his country in today’s public hearing. And it is telling that a nation as great as the USA was not here to make clear its position”.

The Ambassador of Pakistan to the EU, Munawar Bhatti, echoed the British MEP’s sentiments and reiterated the unlawful attacks in his country. During the hearing he said:

“We are opposed to the drone strikes. And we have consistently condemned the drone attacks.

“We regard the drone strikes as illegal in international law, counter productive and a violation of Pakistan sovereignty and integrity.”

Britų europarlamentaras išvyko pabrėžti neigiamą tranų atakų. Jis pasakė:

“The alarming rate at which innocent civilian lives are being lost due to US drone strikes is going against the grain of America’s ‘War on Terror’. It is an adverse foreign policy; instead of protecting America, it is provoking its allies.

“The drone strikes are a big issue. They are an election issue. People in Pakistan are unified in opposing the strikes. It begs to question ‘how conducive are these strikes?’ ‘Where does it leave the standing of the US in the international community?'”

Teisėtumo ir skaidrumo klausimas buvo pagrindinis rūpestis daugelis kalbėtojų, taip pat klausimais kovos produktyvumą.

Hilary Stauffer direktorius Reprieve pavaduotojas, buvo kritiškai pasirašymo streikų naudoti tranai kurie dažnai pulti žmones, remiantis tam tikrais įtartinais judesius. Ji sakė posėdyje:

“No one knows what makes you a target (to signature strikes). That is why no one (in drone strike areas) is going about their daily lives.”

MS Stauffer pridūrė:

“The US is writing international law to suit their own needs.”

Londonas europarlamentaras, baronienė Sarah Ludford tapo aišku, kad ne visi tranai buvo kaltas. Ji pasakė:

“It is not drones in themselves; it is weaponised drones which are the problem. There are legitimate uses for drones in other circumstances.”

Sajjad Karim europarlamentaras baigė klausymą su kvietimu į tarptautinę bendruomenę nedelsiant spręsti situaciją. Jis pasakė:

“We are entering a new era of war where autonomous drones are becoming key players in the battlefield. If we do not address guidelines and legislation for this modern era of warfare then our future looks very bleak indeed.”
