RAWALPINDI: Former interior minister Rehman Malik on Sunday said PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif has been asked to act as the guarantor for peace talks between the Taliban and the army, “So let’s see what role he will play in bringing peace.”

Talking to reporters at Benazir Bhutto International Airport Islamabad on his arrival from London, he added that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) will support the new PML-N-led government in the war against terrorism as Nawaz helped his government.

“We will support the government in war against terror and play a due role of opposition in National Assembly,” he stated.

Malik admitted that drone strikes had increased during the PPP-led government.

“Deputy Air Marshal, in his briefing to the security committee formed by PPP government, revealed that Pakistan Air Force is capable of destroying drones. Now, let’s see what stance the new government will adopt.”

The former interior minister alleged that PPP’s mandate was stolen in the May 11 polls. He said rigging allegations are rampant and the nation won’t forgive the Chief Election Commissioner if he fails to take any action.

Talking about his meeting with Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain in London, he said both parties have agreed to work together.

“I am going to convey Altaf Hussain’s message to President Zardari.”
