US rejects demands to vacate Pakistan drone base

WASHINGTON/ISLAMABAD - The United States is rejecting demands from Pakistani officials that American personnel abandon a military base used by the CIA to stage drone strikes against suspected militants, US officials told Reuters.
US personnel have not left the remote Pakistani military installation known as Shamsi Air Base and there is no plan for them to do so, said a US official familiar with the matter, who asked for anonymity to discuss sensitive material."That base is neither vacated nor being vacated," the official said. The information was confirmed by a second US official.
