Pakistan has no information of reported plans to build a wall along the LoC and any "unilateral" action by India cannot make the ceasefire line the permanent border, PM's Advisor on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz has said.

Pakistan has not received any information from India about the construction of a structure like the Berlin Wall along the Line of Control, he said.

Any unilateral action in this regard by India "cannot declare the LoC as permanent border", Aziz was quoted as saying by state-run Radio Pakistan.

Aziz said strikes by US drones are a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and they have proved counter-productive in the war against terror.

Though there has been a significant decrease in drone strikes this year's Pakistan wants an end to such attacks, he said. Pakistan has been actively raising the issue of drones at every international forum, he added.

On the Pakistan-Iran gas pipeline project, Aziz said both countries are negotiating three technical issues, an extension in the deadline for laying the pipeline's financing for the project and fixation of gas prices.

Ministerial level talks will be held on the project after the completion of technical talks.
