Fazlur Rahman backs talks with Taliban

Feb 28, 2013 - 16:32

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): A pro-Talibaninfo-icon leader on Thursday called for taking the Pakistaninfo-icon army into confidence on peace negotiations between the government and local insurgents.

Jamiat Ulemainfo-icon-i-Islam (F) head Maulana Fazlur Rehman said talks with the Pakistani militants would prove an exercise in futility if the army was not taken on board.

“Peace in Pakistan’s tribal region is closely linked to peace in neighbouring Afghanistaninfo-icon,” he told an all parties conference (APC) organised by his party in Islamabad.

DawnNews quoted Fazlur Rahman as supporting dialogue with the fighters to bring peace and stability to the tribal region, as well as Afghanistan.

Representatives from mainstream political parties, including the ruling PPP, PML-N, PML-Q, JI, PKMAP, and some tribal elders are attending the event.
