Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Saturday said deadlock over negotiations with Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) came due to their unacceptable conditions, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Rashid said that incidents like the Lahore explosion cannot shatter our determination and morale.
The Minister said the investigation of the incident is underway and perpetrators of the incident will be held accountable to the law.
He said two terrorists of TTP were killed in Islamabad on the 18th of this month and the same action would be taken against anyone who will try to spoil the peace of the motherland.
The minister said the nation paid a heavy price for peace restoration in the country and no one will be allowed at any cost to spoil it. He said we have sacrificed more than 80,000 lives and suffered an economic loss of around 150 billion dollars for this purpose.
Regarding speculations about the Presidential system in the country, he said no such move has been discussed in the cabinet.
Sheikh Rashid expressed hope that Prime Minister Imran Khan will complete his five-year tenure and the current opposition will not succeed in any undemocratic move.
The Minister urged the opposition to postpone their rally of 23rd March as Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) world leaders will be in the Federal Capital during those days.
