PESHAWAR: On Tuesday,Tank strike Barrister Mohammad Ali Saif, the Chief Minister’s Special Assistant for Information and Broadcasting, said that the Tank attack was meant to derail peace negotiations with Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP).
Two police officers were killed earlier today in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Tank strike after unidentified persons opened fire on them as they were on polio campaign duty there.
The event took place in the Tank district’s Kot Azam. Since 2012, extremists have killed dozens of polio workers and the security personnel protecting them.
In response to the latest attack in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on a polio vaccination team, Barrister Saif said that anti-TTP organisations opposed peace negotiations between the outlawed group and the government.
The commander told reporters that incidents of extortion and attacks on police were taking place in order to make the conversations fall through.
In response to a query, Saifs stated that they had spoken with the TTP today and that the representatives of the outlawed group were sincere in their communication.
The PTI leader criticised the PML-N-led federal government, alleging that the prime minister convened a jirga on the North Waziristan problem in order to further his political career.
