Need for Taliban office in Pakistan for peace talks: Imran Khan
Peshawar: Pakistan Tehreek-i-InsafChairman Imran Khan has urged the government to allow Taliban to open an office for the peace dialogue in the country.
Khan said that if the government was serious about pursuing the dialogue process with the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan it should allow them to open their own office like the one opened by the Afghan Taliban in Qatar.
He said that if America could allow the opening of office in Qatar to facilitate talks with the Afghan Taliban, why Pakistan could not do the same.
According to Dawn News, he said that although the All-Party Conference had decided to go for negotiations instead of using force, so far no mechanism had been put in place for the dialogue.
The government should demonstrate some seriousness and declare a ceasefire to pave the way for result-oriented talks and to establish peace in the country.
He said that without holding talks with the militants, it would not be possible to end terrorism.
