Representatives from many of Pakistan's political parties on Thursday called on their government to engage in peace talks with the Pakistani Taliban.
The call for a "peace through dialogue" was led by the Awami National Party, a secular political party that rules the northwestern Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province, where Taliban violence has been most concentrated.
Representatives from 27 political parties released a joint communique following the meeting.
Two opposition political parties, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, which is led by Imran Khan, and Jamaat-e-Islami, considered the most organized Islamic party, declined to attend the meeting on Thursday.
