Barrister Gohar underscored that negotiation was the only viable option, and PTI has always been open to dialogue. He noted that recent developments indicate a thawing of tensions and stressed that their offer for negotiation should not be misconstrued as a deal.

In response to a query, the PTI chairman clarified that Imran Khan has not written to the Supreme Court regarding negotiations, but the PTI will respond to the court’s suggestion for dialogue.

It is noteworthy that PTI has maintained that Imran Khan is open to discussions with all parties except for the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, the Pakistan People’s Party and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan.

PTI leaders have also stated their preference for negotiating with those who hold actual power rather than the current government.

Earlier, Prime Minister’s Adviser Rana Sanaullah stated that the government was willing to negotiate with the PTI provided Imran Khan restrained his rhetoric.
