Islamabad, Apr.11 (ANI): The North West Frontier Province (NWFP) government and the Tehrik-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM) have agreed to keep the Swat peace deal intact, The Nation reported.

Representatives of the NWFP government, which included provincial information minister Iftikhar Hussain, Commissioner Malakand Division Syed Muhammad Javed and other top officials, held a meeting with the TNSM delegates.

Both the sides unanimously vowed to keep the peace accord intact in the greater interests of people of the region.

“Peace accord is intact and will remain so in the days to come. There was no truth whatsoever in the news that the peace deal has been broken,” Hussain said.

TNSM chief Maulana Sufi Muhammad, however, was not present during the meeting, to protest against the government’s delay in implementing the Adl regulations in the province. (ANI)
