Negotiations with outlawed TTP will happen according to constitution: Sanaullah

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said Wednesday that negotiations with the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) will be held under the Constitution of Pakistan.

Sanaullah was addressing a press conference alongside Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb after an important meeting on national security was chaired by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. “A detailed session was held on the [security situation], where the military leadership briefed the committee,” the interior minister told the journalists.

Sanaullah assured that negotiations will be held under the constitution and peace will be secured through the talks.

The meeting of the parliamentary committee took place at the Prime Minister’s Office, where representatives from all coalition partners, security apparatus, and other officials were present.

The interior minister, without specifying a date, said an in-camera session of Parliament will be called to take lawmakers into confidence regarding the decisions related to national security.
