The Federal Minister for Interior, Rana Sanaullah said that there will be no talks with the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) or any other terrorist organization.
According to the media reports, this statement comes as the country witnessed a sharp increase in terrorism incidents from the terror outfit based in Afghanistan after the end of the TTP ceasefire last year.
During an interview, the Interior Minister said Pakistan has decided to share evidence with the Taliban government as the terrorists based in Afghanistan are involved in terror activities here. He said that Afghanistan had promised that its territory would not be used against any other country, and the Afghan government would be asked to fulfil that promise.
Rana Sanaullah said that it has been decided in the NSC meeting that there will be no talks with TTP or any other terrorist organization. He said that in the meeting, the army chief had categorically said that mixed messages should not be given on the issue of negotiations with terrorists, the narrative should be clear that there will be no negotiations with any terrorists.
“General Asim Munir made this point in the meeting in clear terms with the evidence. He reiterated his stance that international laws allow action in case of aggression in self-defense,” he added.
