PAKISTAN POLITICIANS CALL FOR PEACE TALKS WITH TALIBAN

0

ISLAMABAD: Pakistani politicians backed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s calls to begin peace talks with the Taliban aimed at ending more than a decade of bloodshed. Representatives from the main coalition and opposition parties who had met for an All Parties Conference asked the government to “initiate the dialogue” with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). The move came a month after Sharif called for talks with the TTP during his first televised address to the nation since taking office after winning elections in May.
