Punjabi Taliban tells Pak govt. to resolve conflict for 'serious' peace talks

Islamabad, Oct. 21 (ANI): The leader of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Punjab, also called the Punjabi Taliban, has said the peace talks with the government are possible, only if the cause of conflict is resolved.

Junood-e-Hafsa leader Asmatullah Moavia said the government needs to review its U.S.-bound foreign policy and abolish anti-Islamist laws to make negotiations possible, the Daily Times reports.

Moavia claimed that his outfit wants implementation of Sharia law in the country and the main purpose of the group is to serve the country's people and Islam.

He further added that peace talks could not be held through the media or talk shows, and the Taliban will present their demands, only if the government shows seriousness. (ANI)
