WASHINGTON - Pakistan has asked the United States to provide unmanned planes that would allow it to strike at militants hiding along the Afghan border, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Wednesday. Qureshi, who is in Washington for three-way talks with his counterpart from Afghanistan and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said Pakistan, and not the United States, should control the missile strikes. In an interview published Wednesday, he said U.S. missile strikes are angering the Pakistani people and making it harder for his government to persuade locals to support the fight against militants. "We feel that if the technology is transferred to Pakistan, Pakistan will be in a better position to determine how to use the technology and, without alienating people, achieve the objective," he said. "Pakistan is a willing partner with the U.S. in this fight," he said. "Let us exercise that judgment." Qureshi said the matter was raised Tuesday in a meeting with President Barack Obama's national security adviser, retired Gen. James Jones. He would not provide specific details; "we are talking at this stage," he said. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs would not comment on Qureshi's comments. Qureshi also said the Obama White House is more "willing to listen" to Pakistan than the Bush administration. The Bush administration, he said, "had a point of view, and it was like the approach was, 'This is it; take it or leave it.'" He called the Obama administration's approach "more understanding and more endearing." Qureshi and Pakistan's army chief Gen. Ashfaq Kayani are in Washington to participate, along with Afghan Foreign Minister Dadfar Rangeen Spanta, in the administration's efforts to craft a new strategy for Pakistan and Afghanistan. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said the United States wants "this review to be as inclusive as possible. The White House is reaching out to everybody with a stake in this." "It won't just be window dressing: take a look at our plan and sign off on it when it's already virtually completed," he said. "We are all collectively in this, and we need as much advice and buy-in as possible for this to be a success." On the Obama administration's drone strikes, Qureshi called for Pakistan and the United States to "reassess the advantages and disadvantages, and, if the disadvantages outweigh the advantages, there is a case to review this strategy." Qureshi, who met Secretary Clinton on Tuesday as part of a series of meetings this week in Washington as the US is engaged in a strategic review of the situation in Afghanistan, said, "Pakistan is willing to work with the American administration to fight extremism and terrorism. We are determined to defeat terrorism in all its forms and manifestations."
