KARACHI: Former interior minister Rehman Malik has said that the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan is a terrorist organization and how can it be transformed into a political party.

Speaking to media at the Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport here on Friday, he said though Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s intention should not be doubted, the Taliban had earlier broken agreements with the government. He also questioned Taliban’s sources who were providing them heavy weapons.

The former minister said that Pakistan should not enter an agreement that could vilify the country.

He termed Pakistan People’s Party’s talks with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement.
