Sharif further said the time had come for a bold review of Pakistan's foreign policy as scant national resources cannot be exploited for the good of the poor and the progress of the country without this. He said his dream to make Pakistan an Asian tiger is deeply linked to this.
He said his government has a "clear cut position" on US drone attacks, which are a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty, and this was directly communicated to Secretary of State John Kerry.
Kerry was urged to stop the drone attacks, he said. The UN Secretary General too expressed concern at the killing of peaceful civilians in these attacks, he said.
