Afghan Taliban mediate for peace in Pakistan!
ISWNews Analysis Group: The Pakistani government and the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), mediated by the Afghan Taliban, began negotiations for an indefinite ceasefire and an end to the war.
The Pakistani government and the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have agreed to extend an indefinite ceasefire and are negotiating to end two decades of war in Pakistan’s tribal areas, according to Pakistani news agencies.
But other local media outlets denied the agreement, citing the visit of a 50-member delegation of Pakistani tribal leaders to the Afghan capital, Kabul, and insisted that the Pakistani delegation begin talks with Pakistani Taliban leaders.
The Pakistani delegation, mediated by the Haqqani Network, met with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) leader Noor Wali Mahsud, his deputy Maulvi Faqir Mohammad and a number of other senior members of the group to discuss extending the ceasefire.
The talks coincide with the release of a UN report on the existence of eight military and training bases for the Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist group and three military and training bases for the Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist group in Nangarhar and Kunar provinces. The report also said that the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is the largest terrorist group linked to members of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, Jamaat-e-Ansarullah Tajikistan and other terrorist groups in Afghanistan.
Negotiations between the Pakistani government and the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) are being mediated by the Afghan Taliban, while their previous talks have failed and resulted in bloody clashes.
