Islamabad - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has said that the war against terrorism can be won in 90 days through dialogue.
He said this in his meeting with British Foreign Secretary William Hague here on Tuesday.
He said it was high time to give peace a chance through dialogue with the tribal people and added that every military operation by Pakistan army against its own people had ended in failure. “We can help Americans in their withdrawal from their mess in this region”, he added.
He told Hague what would be PTI’s agenda in the first 100 days after coming into power. He said that there was a need for good governance that means de-politicization of state institutions, bureaucracy and police. Alongside, he declared his support for devolution giving power to people at grassroots level.
Imran Khan said his party has always advocated a political solution to the problem of terrorism and militancy. He added that his first move would be to have a ceasefire and convince the US that a credible government in Pakistan could stop the militancy in the tribal areas.
Hague agreed that there was recognition that there had to be reconciliation in Afghanistan, even amongst the Americans. But "there are some people like Al Qaeda who are not reconcilable."
