ISLAMABAD: Maulana Samiul Haq has welcomed the Taliban’s offer for holding talks with the government and demanded that government should take serious steps to initiate the dialogue process.

In a statement Sami ul Haq said losses were being incurred by both sides on a daily basis which was regrettable.

Referring to his meeting with PM on Jan 2 Haq said that following his meeting with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, he had approached the Taliban the next day. In response, the Taliban had agreed to hold stable, lasting and meaningful talks.

He said that he appeals to both sides to ceasefire and create an environment of peace and confidence so that the dialogue process could move forward.

He said that he appeals to PM and other stake holders to avoid force and operation under any circumstances as God forbid it can lead to anarchy in the country
