Rehman Malik welcome negotiation offer from TTP

Rehman Malik

Pakistan, Islamabad News :  Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Monday welcomed the offer of negotiation by banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

The TTP on Sunday expressed its willingness to hold talks with the government but on two conditions – release of its seven leaders and guarantees by leaders of PML-N, JUI-F and JI to make the exercise fruitful.

“The release of Muslim Khan, Maulvi Omar and five other Taliban leaders is prerequisite for talks, while former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Syed Munawar Hasan should be granulators, TTP spokesman, Ehsanullah Ehsan, said through a video massage.

“I have often said that bullet is not the solution to problems. Tough earlier it was not clear with whom the Taliban are willing to talk but if they have mentioned granulators lets welcome it,” Malik told reporters here.

To a question, Malik said the government would reply to offer in couple of days. He, however, said that the negotiation offer should have been unconditional rather that linked with release of Taliban men.

To a query about Tahirul Qadris’ claim about military coup, Malik said “we want to know on basis of what information Mr. Qadri claimed that martial law could have been imposed during his sit-in. How can he speak on half of army? He must thing before speaking.”

Malik appealed Chief Justice of Pakistan to take notice of Qadri’s claims.

Replying to a question about opposition parties’ sit-in and march outside the Parliament House, Malik said “there are parliamentarians…They are free to do every think. We will facilitate them.”
