Victory for the Taliban
The Pakistani government has struck a deal with the pro-Taliban activists. A deal was stuck after detailed negotiation, which America advised them against
“We have real reservations about negotiated agreements with extremists,” he told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
“There is a lot at stake here and we have made the point repeatedly.”
Last week Nato also criticsed the deal. I dont understand why are these bodies so reluctant to get into a dialogue. In this day and age a war can not be won in this day and age without negotiation.
Below are the terms of the negotiations which have been disclosed.
- Sharia law in Swat
- close of training camps and end attacks.
- hand over any foreign militants
- government would make limited concessions on militant demands for the imposition of Islamic law in the region
These are just some of the 15 point deal disclosed. All and all a positive first move made by the new government.
