ISWNews Analysis Group: Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Mohammad Khorasani issued a statement announcing an indefinite ceasefire with the Pakistani government.

After two days of talks between the 50-member Pakistani tribal group and Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) representatives, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Mohammad Khorasani issued a statement on the morning of June 12th announcing an indefinite ceasefire with the Pakistani government.

According to local sources, one of the key conditions for inciting the Pakistani Taliban to accept the ceasefire is the release of all Pakistani Taliban prisoners and the implementation of Islamic law by the government in the tribal areas.

On the other hand, the Pakistani parliament (lower house) announced that it was unaware of the 50-member group’s talks with the Pakistani Taliban in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, and considered their decisions unacceptable to the Pakistani people. In this regard, the “Pashtun Manzoor” leader of the Pakistani Pashteen Tahafuz Movement also criticized the talks with the Pakistani Taliban and said: “Of these 50 people, not a single one represents the people of Waziristan, and all of them are representatives of the Pakistani army.”

Despite the announcement of a ceasefire by the Pakistani Taliban, peace talks mediated by the Afghan Taliban between representatives of Pakistani tribes and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) leaders in Kabul continue.
