Govt invites Imran Khan for dialogue

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s federal government on Wednesday invited Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan to dialogue over his complaints over election results and rigging.

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Pervaiz Rasheed assured to address PTI’s concerns, adding that the climate of conflict and confrontation can affect the operation Zarb-e-Azb against terrorists.

Pervaiz Rasheed said while talking to a private TV channel that he is ready to hold a dialogue with PTI either inside or outside the parliament.

“Is there ever a problem that cannot be solved?” he asked.

He said he’s willing to address Khan’s complaints, adding that the government wants to solve the problems through dialogue.

Federal Minister said that this is an important phase of the history and that the message of division should not go to public. He said this isn’t a military dictatorship, adding that the country enjoys civilian rule.

Rasheed said the elimination of terrorism is only possible through unity.

“We all should back the army by being united,” he said.

Information minister said that even though the politics of protests is part of democracy, the time is not favourable for it.

He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif always talked about dialogue and is ready for it again.
