PESHAWAR- Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) Minister of Health and Information, Shaukat Yousafzai, today said that they were ready for assistance of the Taliban office in the province in order to step forward for peace establishment in the country.

KPK minister Shaukat Ali Yousafzai was addressing a press conference in Peshawar, the provincial capital of KPK. During an anti-polio campaign he said that they were ready to play role in peace establishment.

Yousafzai reiterated that assistance would be provided to Taliban for an office opening in the province as they offered before but faced severe criticism from many political circles.

KPK government wishes a health and polio-free society. The provincial government is taking significant steps in this regard but controlling terrorism is out of our reach, he said.
