Imran Khan urges Army Chief to revive Taliban talks

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan Tuesday appealed the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif to have the process of Taliban peace talks revived.

At a press conference at his residence in Bani Gala, Imran Khan observed that the country witnessed a visible decline in the acts of terrorism after the process of peace dialogue was put into gear.

“This is why I appeal the Army Chief to save the country, save the army and the dialogue process be revived,” Khan said.

He reiterated that Pakistan is fighting America’s war in North Waziristan ‘whose inhabitants are becoming hostile towards Pakistan’ and the IDPs instead of coming to Pakistan are moving to Afghanistan.

Imran Khan lamented that an impression is being projected as if the Punjab is actually the whole Pakistan. The project of circular railway for Karachi has been scrapped while an agreement for a similar project has been signed for Lahore, he pointed out.
