ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Monday that the resolution of All Parties Conference (APC) was in many ways similar to the demand for “peace” pushed by PTI.
In an official statement, Khan said that this was just the beginning of the formation of a national holistic policy on counter terrorism.
He added that his meeting with Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Ashfaq Kayani and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, prior to the All Parties Conference (APC) had also proved to be satisfactory.
Khan said that political parties had shown clarity in opposing drone strikes in the Conference, stating that this would allow Pakistan to move in a clearer direction in terms of developing its counter-terrorism policy.
PTI Chairman said that taking the drone issue to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) must also be seen as one of the many policy options.
Asserting that he opposes the idea of sending military to tribal areas, he said that his meeting with General Kayani and Prime Minister Sharif had answered a lot of questions.
