Analysts have stressed the need for continuing peace talks being held between representatives of the government and the Taliban.  

Speaking in Nuqta-e-Nazar programme of Radio Pakistan’s News and Current Affairs Channel Friday‚ senior journalist Aqeel Yusufzai said it is a welcome development that the committees of the government and the Taliban have agreed to continue the peace talks. He‚ however‚ said that frequent terror attacks would reduce chances of success of the dialogue process. He said the two committees should immediately reach agreement on ceasefire to make the environment conducive to move forward.  

Defense analyst Col.  (r) Sultan Sikandar Ghumman said war is no solution to any problem‚ and ultimately every issue has to be resolved through talks. Appreciating the wise initiative of the prime minister of starting peace talks with the Taliban‚ Ghumman said Ulema should come forward to play their role for establishing peace in the country. He said the enemies of Pakistan who do not want to see peace in the country are behind the recent terror attacks.  

Taking part in the programme‚ analyst Dr. Hussain Shaheed Suhrawardy said the government looks serious in talks with the Taliban‚ and the Taliban should also respond positively. He urged the people to observe patience regarding recent developments. He said militant groups‚ which are not happy with the dialogue process‚ might be behind the recent spate of violence in the country.
