PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) is ready to hold talks with the outlawed Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militants, the PTI senior leader Pervez Khattak said on Friday.
Pervez Khattak, soon-to-be Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, said we have no enmity with the Taliban.
He said the Taliban were also Pakistanis and that they request the militant group to hold peace talks and work for peace in the region.
“We appeal to Taliban that we are not at war with you, this province is yours and we are hopeful you will work for its peace. “We are not against anyone and not here to fight anyone, we want peace and development in our province and we want to talk to them, ” he said.
Pervaiz Khattak also said that they should be given a chance to settle the problem.
“Our request to them is that we want peace in the province and that they should extend to us their help,” Khattak said.
