Amid the growing terror activities in Pakistan, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has invited former PM Imran Khan to a multi-party conference (MPC) to address the critical security challenges the country is currently face with.  

Marriyan Aurangzeb, Pakistan’s Information Minister in an announcement said, that a multi-party conference will be held in Islamabad on February 7, for which an invitation has been extended to the PTI Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan.

The invitation to the PTI was formally delivered to party leaders Pervez Khattak and Asad Qaiser by former speaker and federal minister, Sardar Ayaz Sadiq. However, PTI has not commented about the invitation so far.

The all party meeting is aimed at addressing the security challenges and the growing militancy in the country.

“In order to overcome the growing threats of terrorism and militancy in Pakistan, a collective approach, with the participation of all political parties and stakeholders, is required at this very moment of time as the ruling coalition is struggle to resolve the economic challenges,” Prime Minister Sharif said.

Discussing security issues, the capability of Counter Terrorism Department and security agencies of Pakistan will be thoroughly discussed in the all party meeting. The MPC is the very first initiative the government is taking following the terror attack at a mosque in Peshawar, which claimed the lives of hundreds of people.

Since the Peshawar blast, a war of word is going on in between the leaders of the ruling coalition and the PTI, blaming each other for the recent rise in terrorism. The ruling regime accuses the previous government for allowing militants in Pakistan’s tribal areas following the Afghan Taliban’s takeover of Kabul in August 2021.

Some political experts believe the current resurgence of terrorism has provided the Pakistani leadership the opportunity to keep their differences aside, and work together to fight the grown threats of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and other militant groups.
