Musharraf backs negotiations with Taliban

Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has stressed the need for talks with Taliban to end the conflict in the region.


Washington, Oct 11: Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has stressed the need for talks with Taliban to end the conflict in the region.

"I was always of the view that we need to change strategy. We need to go in for deals. So, my strategy always was to strike a deal," The Daily Times quoted Musharraf, as saying.

He said that his position had been "vindicated now when everyone is talking of going into some political agreements with moderate Taliban".

The former President further dismissed the suggestion that Pakistan was not doing enough to fight terrorism.

"Pakistan has always been accused of not doing enough, but I totally disagree with this statement - Pakistan is doing enough," Musharraf said.

"Don't generalize the statement that the Pakistan Army is not doing enough. They have suffered over 2,000 casualties. What do we mean by 'not doing enough'?" he added.
