PESHAWAR: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party's Sherpao faction and former Interior  Minister Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao says there is no existence of the Haqqani Network in Balochistan.

The Haqqani network is an independent insurgent group in Afghanistan and Pakistan that is closely allied with the Taliban. The network is thought to present one of the biggest threats to Nato and United States forces in Afghanistan.

Sherpao was addressing a press conference at his home in Hyatabad, Peshawar.

Aftab Sherpao said US and Nato forces have failed in Afghanistan and are searching for a safe passage of their troops from the country now. He said foreign troops should ensure that peace and development takes place in the country before they leave.

Sherpao said political parties should get together and help the Pashtoons. He added that coalition parties are fighting amongst each other for their own interests.
