Pakistan rules out talks with banned TTP

Urges Afghanistan to take ‘urgent action against terrorist outfits’

The Foreign Office ruled out talks with the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan, a day after a senior leader from the outlawed group’s ideological twin – Afghan Taliban – advised the two sides to sit together and negotiate for peace.

At a weekly press briefing on Thursday, FO spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch ruled out talks with the TTP.

She was responding to a query. Muhammad Nabi Omari, deputy interior minister of the interim Taliban government in Afghanistan, shared his views at an Iftar gathering in the southeastern Khost town on Wednesday.

Baloch said Pakistan expected Afghan authorities to take urgent action against terrorist outfits and their leadership for the crimes they were committing and the terrorist incidents they were responsible for in Pakistan, according to Radio Pakistan.

She further said that Pakistan remained committed to fighting against all terrorist outfits which had targeted Pakistan and the symbols of Pakistan-China friendship.
