Pakistan’s Minister for Interior, Rana Sanaullah, has said that any serious negotiations must be held with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. He made the comment on Twitter after Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nawaz Sharif and Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb rejected an offer to hold talks from the opposition party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). Talks between the two parties have been called for by political parties and the public. Nawaz Sharif stated that negotiations should only be held with politicians, not a “group of terrorists who burn the memorials of martyrs and set the country on fire”. Aurangzeb ruled out negotiations with PTI, citing the attacks on state properties during the nationwide protests following the arrest of PTI leader Imran Khan on 9 May. PTI had established a negotiating team to hold talks with the government on Khan’s instructions. However, Pervez Khattak later resigned from the team.
