Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti has said that the provincial government has reached peace agreements with all groups in insurgency hit areas including TNSM and Fazlullah group for establishing the writ of the government and bring peace and normalcy to the region.
“Clauses of the agreements are opened and these accords were singed after the government was assured of no attacks on security forces or government installations in troubled areas,” Hoti told German ambassador to Pakistan Dr. Gunter Mulack, who called on him at his office on Tuesday.
Ameer Haider Khan Hoti said that some forces were against the provincial government efforts for peace and stability, adding assassination attack on TNSM leader Maulan Sufi Mohammad was part of that conspiracy, in which the Maulana narrowly escaped.
The chief minister briefed the German envoy about the overall progress being achieved in improving law and order situation and developmental strategies of his government in the province.
Hoti also thanked the German government for its assistance in various fields and said the government and the people of the province greatly valued their services.
In his address, Dr. Gunter Mulack said that his government will continue to support the newly elected provincial government for the development of the province.
Chief Minister rebutted the impression that a parallel government or judicial system will be established in Swat and Malakand as result of the agreements.
He said the basic problem of the Swat dwellers was delay in receiving justice and his government was taking measures for provision of speedy justice to the people of Swat.
Hoti said peace in neighboring Afghanistan was linked with peace in tribal region which had direct bearing the settled parts of the province.
He said that fruitful results of the FATA package could only be achieved if administrative and political reforms were carried out in tribal areas.
He said that innocent people were affected from use of force in FATA and led to increased support of locals for the militants there.
Hoti said that the British foreign minister during his visit to Peshawar had supported the provincial government for its efforts establish peace and stability in the province.
He said that it was very necessary to strengthen police forces for curbing militancy and establishing writ of the government in the province. Underlining the need for sufficient resources, the chief minister said the police force needed to be provided latest weapons, training and other allied facilities in order to enable them to cope with untoward situation.
