Islamabad: Pakistani politician Imran Khan on Thursday urged the government and military leaders to build a strategy to halt US drone attacks.

Khan, the head of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) party which made a major breakthrough in May 11 general election, is a vocal opponent of the missile attacks targeting Taliban and Al-Qaeda militants.

"The Prime Minister, Army Chief and Chief Ministers should sit together and form a policy on drone attacks," Khan said.

The PTI chief took oath as a Member of the National Assembly (MNA) on Thursday. He was unable to take the oath with other lawmakers on June 1 as he was undergoing treatment for serious back injuries suffered in a fall at an election rally shortly before the polling date.

He also criticized government decision to increase General Sales Tax (GST) in the budget for the next fiscal year.
