Pak Govt. agrees to quit U.S.-led war against terrorism

Islamabad, Sept. 10 (ANI): Pakistan has agreed to quit the United States-led war on terrorism and implement its own strategy to counter insurgency amid a growing demand from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief and former cricketer Imran Khan.

The resolution was made at the All Parties Conference (APC) held under the chair of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday, The Nation reports.

The government announced that they will determine the means and the mode of fighting the war against terror in the national interest and shall not be guided by the U.S. or any other country, the report added.

Khan has been advocating from day one that Pakistan should disengage from the war on terror first before engaging in negotiations with the Taliban.

Earlier, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Government was finding it difficult to come out of the U.S. influence without support shown from all political parties towards the decision in Parliament. (ANI)
