March 2, 2020 02:36 PM
People have called for the award of the Nobel peace prize to Prime Minister Imran Khan in recognition of his historic role in Afghan peace.
The landmark peace agreement signed between the United States and the Afghan Taliban marks the end of the 18-year-war in Afghanistan.
Hundreds of tweets have been posted with the hashtag Nobel Peace for PM Imran Khan as Khan always suggested that dialogue is the only way forward to the Afghan issue.
The #NobelPeacePrizeforImranKhan became a top trend on Twitter over the weekend as a result.
The Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar, also shared the same sentiments that he praised Imran Khan as the only leader in the region who has strived for peace.
In a statement issued from the Governor’s House on Sunday, he said that Imran Khan had been calling for resolving the dispute through dialogue since America and its allies waged war in Afghanistan and today America and Taliban accepted Imran Khan’s standpoint.
“Alhamdulillah, today war is dying down and peace is taking root in Afghanistan. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Pakistan has played a historic and decisive role in Afghan peace, and the Taliban-America peace accord is the victory of the principled stand of Prime Minister Imran Khan,” he added.
