Amid Crisis, Pak PM Invites Imran Khan To All-Party Meet: Report
ISLAMABAD: As per reports, Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has invited Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to an all-party conference (APC) set to take place in Islamabad on February 7.
The APC is aimed at finding solutions to surmount the daunting economic and political crises in Pakistan.”The prime minister seeks to bring heads of all political parties on the table so they can figure out ways to address “important national challenges”, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said in a statement.
During the committee’s meeting, all stakeholders — police, Rangers, officials from intelligence agencies, and others — will participate, according to the minister. The invitation is a major development as the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)-led government and the PTI have always been at loggerheads over almost all national issues, since Khan’s ouster from the PM Office.
The meeting will discuss Monday’s Peshawar suicide bombing, ways to root out terrorism, and the upgradation of the police and counter-terrorism department (CTD).
