KP Assembly may ban NATO supplies
Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak told a public meeting in Mansehra district on Sunday: "We are moving the assembly to pass a resolution banning the use of our soil for transportation of NATO supplies..."
His government would meet whatever commitment Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan would make without considering its consequences, Khattak said, hinting the provincial legislature could pass the resolution today.
"We would take into confidence leaders of other political parties in the KP Assembly on the issue as people wanted it (blocking NATO supplies) and we would come up to their expectations," the chief minister added.
The PTI had extended unconditional support to the central government’s plan for dialogue with the Taliban, but a single drone strike sabotaged all its sincere efforts for peace, he lamented.
