RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: The Pakistan army troops have been deployed for the security of Red Zone in Islamabad, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Tuesday.

Earlier, the federal government handed over the responsibility of the Red Zone’s security to the Pakistan army, the federal interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan announced at a news conference in Islamabad.

The interior minister reiterated invitation of the government to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) for holding dialogue and said that he himself and the finance minister Ishaq Dar could go to them for this purpose as the government seriously wants to defuse the situation through peaceful means.
