ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Monday that the militants should be given another chance to hold peace talks, in addition he also urged the Taliban to announce an unconditional ceasefire to secure peace process.
Talking to media representatives outside the Parliament House in Islamabad on Monday, the PTI chairman said that the operation should be carried out against the militants who are involved in terrorism while negotiations should be held with those militants who are ready for talks.
Imran said that there are over 50 groups operating under the umbrella of the outlawed Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and majority of them are in favour of dialogue.
The PTI chairman said that 80 per cent of the people displaced during the operation in South Waziristan are yet to be re-settled and the concerns of the population of North Waziristan should be considered before an operation was carried out in the region.
Moreover, he advised the government to conduct surgical strikes against those elements which are causing damage to military and the people of Pakistan.
