ISLAMABAD: Parliament passed resolutions condemning an American-led attack in Pakistani territory after the government summoned the U.S. ambassador to protest the unusually bold raid in a troubled border region that was hit by a deadly missile strike Thursday.
The chorus of criticism grew two days before the Asif Ali Zardari is expected to be chosen as president in a vote by legislators.
A spokesman for Asif Ali Zardari condemned Wednesday's pre-dawn assault in the South Waziristan tribal region. It killed at least 15 people, officials say, and was the first known foreign ground assault in Pakistan against a Taliban.
But Zardari also said Pakistan stands with the U.S. against international terrorism.
Zardari is expected to pursue a pro-U.S. policy similar to that of former President Pervez Musharraf and continue to go after Islamic militants accused of crossing into Afghanistan to attack the U.S.-led international security force there.
