    WASHINGTON / ISLAMABAD: The US is rejecting demands from Pakistan that American personnel abandon a military base used by the CIA to stage drone strikes against militants, US officials told Reuters.

    US personnel have not left the Shamsi air base and there is no plan for them to do so, said a US official familiar with the matter. “That base is neither vacated nor being vacated,” the official said. The information was confirmed by a second US official.

    That's an old report. Dated July 2011, it's not related to the most recent Pakistani demand to vacate Shamsi by setting a deadline, after the NATO airstrike that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

    In July Pakistan had politely asked US to vacate Shamsi, and US declined. That article is already posted in several older threads.

    So this thread gets closed.
