ISLAMABAD, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said Tuesday U.S. drone attacks are a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and are also against international laws.

Khar said in a statement she plans to take up the issue with U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan Richard Olson, Geo News reported.

In the statement, Khar said Pakistan is not oblivious to the problems confronting the country, Dawn News reported.

The statement came after the Obama administration finalized a rule book on targeted drone killings that would not apply to Pakistan. The new rules would allow the CIA to conduct drone strikes in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Dawn News reported.
