Shamsi Air Base has been partially taken in control by the Pakistan Army. It was allegedly used by CIA for their drone operations. Sources say that the matters are between UAE and Pakistan which took the Shamsi Base in 1992 for hunting.It was then handed to the CIA.
It is said that UAE and Pakistan will be discussing the matter on many levels to resolve their issues. The United States had shifted their drone operation bases to Afghanistan from Shamsi. The decision came as pressure from Pakistan has gained momentum against bases presence in their country. Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar, the Defence Minister said that US was asked to vacate their air base at Shamsi.
Pakistan asked the United States to vacate their airbase after Raymond Davis was arrested. Since then, CIA has been in the Afghan soil for their drone operations.
