Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Nisar said that it was the unanimous decision of all political parties and military leadership to hold talks with the Taliban in the best national interest, a Pakistani news agency reported.

“It is our own decision. The draft for the talks is ready. However, I cannot share its details. We will keep you updating and share information as the talks progress,” the agency quoted him as saying.

Nisar said that the security issue was a very sensitive matter as many hidden forces did not want peace in the country.

Highlighting the importance of the media’s role in the present scenario, he said it should be more responsible while reporting on security issues, especially talks with the Taliban, as unauthentic news items could sabotage the entire process.

The media has an important role in consolidating the dialogue process, he added.

He said it was encouraging that the Taliban has also reciprocated the government’s gesture.
