Outlawed TTP negotiators to seek end to deadlock in peace talks


ISLAMABAD – The negotiators on behalf of outlawed militant group Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) all set to put forward their demands in front of federal interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan as a last resort to put an end to prevailing deadlock.

The Taliban appointed negotiator and leader of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Professor Ibrahim has confirmed the meeting with the interior minister on Wednesday.

Though, not very hopeful, Ibrahim has been asking the government to meet the demands of outlawed Taliban militants and the top most of it was to release their men.

Chaudhry Nisar, had released at least 19 Taliban men but Ibrahim and his appointing militant groups openly denied that those released from the custody were never on the lists.

However, during today’s meeting, the two sides will discuss ways to push the dialogue process forward in the backdrop of Taliban’s refusal to extend the ceasefire. They are also expected to discuss the second face-to-face meeting between the government and Taliban shura.
