PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Wednesday welcomed dialogue between Afghan Taliban and the government in Kabul saying such issues could only be resolved on the table.

“We were called supporters of Taliban when we demanded to resolve the issue on table. Today, I am happy our stance is acknowledged and dialogue process has resumed,” said Imran, while speaking to the media after meeting members of Army Public School (APS) Shuhada Forum.

"US diplomat Richard Holbrooke was also a supporter of resolving the Taliban issue through talks," he added.

Further, according to Express News, the PTI chairman said all demands of families of the Peshawar attack victims will be met.

Bilal Khan | 5 years ago | Reply Enough is enough, now shut your mouth. I hate Nawaz Sharif but at least he chose right words in his speeches and press conferences. I'm insafian but i will never vote for you again if you did not shut your mouth. Seriously you are damaging PTI. Wake up man, this is politics not cricket. In cricket win and loss is in our hand but in politics it's all in the hands of public.
