Peshawar: Khyber Pukhtunkhwa Government has announced to convene All Parties Conference APC to devise a joint strategy to cope with terrorism and convey the suggestions of APC to the centre for implementation.

While talking to media after inquiring the health of injured of Shirgharh Blast at LRH on Wednesday minister for health and information Shaukat Yousafzai said that terrorism was not the issue of a single party rather it was the problem of every individual living in the province.

IN APC, he said every party inside and outside of parliament would be invited and their proposals for peace would be sought as how to cope with the terrorism and how could peace be restored in the province.

“If USA can talk to Taliban in Qatar then what is wrong in our contacts with Taliban” he said adding that talks with Taliban should be the way out towards peace.

PTI, he said from the day first opposed the war on terror and drone attacks but still suicide attacks in their government were beyond understanding. He said attacking innocents at funeral procession was condemnable act and it should be stopped. To a question, the minister said that 35 persons were killed in yesterday’s bomb blast at Shirgarh Mardan.
