ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak has warned his government would block supplies to Afghanistaninfo-icon-based NATOinfo-icon troops if the US does not halt drone strikes in Pakistaninfo-icon.

Khattak told reporters in the northwestern city of Nowshera on Saturday that his administration would be left with no option but to stop supplies to the International Security Assistance Force if drone attacks continued.

He had asked the Centre to hold result-oriented talks with the Talibaninfo-icon for bringing peace and stability to the country, particularly to the militancy-plagued province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The provincial government, led by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, was in favour of jirgainfo-icon of religious scholars holding negotiations with the militants, he said, calling for the insurgents to announce a ceasefire.

Mainstream political parties had mandated the central government to enter parleys with the militants, he said, regretting the Centre had been lethargic in implementing recommendations of a recent all parties conference.
