PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): A Pakhtun nationalist party has urged Islamabad to pave the ground for a joint offensive with Kabul against terrorists.

Awami National Party (ANP) general secretary Mian Iftikhar Hussain called terrorists the common enemy of Afghanistan.

Speaking to reporters in the Nowshera district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Sunday, he stressed the need for a joint operation to eradicate terrorists from the region.

The elements, who stoked the fire of terrorism in border areas, should know that they would not remain safe either, remarked the former information minister.

He also called for an operation against terrorists in Punjab, as well as a review the foreign and internal policies. The policy of ‘good and bad Taliban’ be buried, he demanded.

All political parties should support joint action by Pakistan and Afghanistan against terrorists, the ANP leader said, asking the government to Waziristan IDPs.
