PESHAWAR: The Chief Minister of the Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Pervez Khattak, on Tuesday has expressed deep concerns over on the federal government for delay in commencement of peace dialogue with Taliban.
Pervez Khattak’s statement came after visible delay made by the federal government as per observation of provincial authorities of KPK.
Khattak expressed his concerns over obscure delay seen in the dialogue process with the banned outfit in Pakistan, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) after the federal government announcement for holding talks shortly.
The CM KPK demanded the federal government for taking firm steps for US drone strikes in the province.
He said that the US drone attacks killed more than 400 citizens of Pakistan.
The statement of KPK’s top official came at the time when a non-governmental organization, Amnesty International (AI), accused the United States of drone strike killings in Pakistan, a new report published on Tuesday reveals.
Amnesty International claims there is new evidence that indicates that the US has carried out “unlawful killings in Pakistan through drone attacks, some of which could even amount to war crimes”.
In a major new report, AI reviewed all 45 known drone strikes in a suspected militant compound North Waziristan in north-western Pakistan that happened between January 2012 and August 2013.
