ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday told Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan to take all political parties into confidence with regards to peace talks with Taliban, Express News reported.

The prime minister met Nisar today in Islamabad.

Nawaz said that the "political parties should also express their opinion and give suggestions with regards to the peace talks.”

“Peace is important for the social and economic prosperity of the country,” he further said.

Despite the fact that all political parties were in favour of peace talks, there have been several terrorist attacks in the country.

All Parties Conference

Political parties had unanimously reached a resolution on September 9 at the APC, stating that negotiation with the militants should be pursued as their first option to counter terrorism.

The draft, drawn up at the end of the conference was signed by all the political parties in attendance.

Prime Minister Nawaz had said that holding negotiations with terrorists was their own decision.

It was decided that if the negotiations with the militants don’t work, “action” will be taken against them.

The Failed Rebel | 8 years ago | Reply @ModiFied: As always, agreed 100%. Spineless cowards are not fit to rule the country. I wonder why, just why, IK doesn't take proper systematic action through the judicial system to inquire into the delay regarding Taliban talks. The more we delay it, the more devastating the consequences of this menace become.
