Khan asks govt to withdraw from US war on terror


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has urged the PPP-led coalition government to immediately disengage itself from the US-led war on terror saying that it has never been the Pakistan’s war.
He expressed these views while talking to ambassador and Head of Delegation of the European Union, Lars-Gunnar Wigemark, who called on the PTI leader here on Monday.
“It is a war that we have been fighting for the sake of dollars that end up in a few people’s hands and it is being done at the cost of our sovereignty and national interests,” Khan added.
Khan said he had been a very vocal opponent of the so called war against terrorism stressing that there was no military solution to that problem.
He said an immediate ceasefire should be announced in the restive tribal region and that should be followed by the initiation of a dialogue with the militant groups.
Khan told the visiting EU delegation that the process of reconciliation could be expedited through the setting up of a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission”. He said such a commission could address all the nagging issues.
Khan said there was a need to win over the tribal people to “our side” instead of carrying out bombing on them.
“Pakistan is being ruled by a corrupt mafia that has been brought into power through the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO). They have their assets abroad, their children are there and their interests were out of this country,” Khan maintained.
Khan stressed that the European Union should ensure the holding of free and fair elections in Pakistan for which genuine electoral lists and an independent Election Commission were essential prerequisites. He warned that if the path to free and fair elections was impeded, there would be a bloodbath in the country. He expressed hope that PTI would sweep the next elections in and put the country on its way to progress.
