The army’s participation in peace talks is not our demand, but if the govt wants to make the army part of the process, we have no objection,” committee member Prof Ibrahim Khan told reporters following a workers convention in Charsadda.
At the same time, Professor Muhammad Ibrahim took a gentle swipe at the government committee. “They realised that they have no decision-making power when they demanded formation of a new powerful committee,” he said.
Yet, he said, some people think that the induction of such powerful institutions will make the talks fruitful.
Professor Ibrahim added that the government peace committee would not be dissolved but would just be expanded.
