Gov't confused over security situation, peace talks, says Siraj
ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Siraj ul Haq has said that the Federal Government is confused over the security situation of the state and peace talks with Taliban, whereas a terrorist attack inside the federal capital has raised a question mark – ARY News reports.
Addressing a news conference here on Tuesday, Siraj ul Haq welcomed the truce announced by Taliban and urged the Government of Pakistan to step forward for a complete ceasefire.
He further suggested to give the form of a national committee to both Government and Taliban nominated teams for peace talks and urged the Government not to waste any more time as per the current circumstances.
Siraj continued saying that the central government should also include provincial stake-holders in the consultation process for the state cannot afford further discrimination and narrow-sightedness.
The KP Minister complained that the federation did not consult Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) while forming its negotiations team and now it did not take us on-board regarding the National Security Policy (NSP).
He urged the Government to make the security policy a national policy rather than a 'leaguei-policy'.
