Impressed by the statement of American leaders, Imran said – paid a heavy price for supporting America in Afghanistan

In meetings with Pakistani officials, the TTP made three demands, including allowing the opening of a political office in a third country, reversing the merger of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas with Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, and the introduction of an Islamic system in Pakistan.

Islamabad, PTI. The banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has asked the Pakistan government to allow it to open political offices in a third country. Describing this demand of TTP as unacceptable, the Pak government has rejected it. In a series of meetings with Pakistani officials during negotiations for a peace deal, the TTP made three demands, including allowing the opening of a political office in a third country, reversing the merger of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas with Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province and Pakistan. Including the introduction of the Islamic system.

The newspaper Express Tribune said Pakistani officials told the TTP directly and through Taliban negotiators that these demands were not acceptable. The TTP was specifically told clearly that there was no question of introducing an Islamic system based on their interpretation. Also, the terrorist group was told that Pakistan is an Islamic republic and the country's constitution clearly states that all laws in Pakistan must conform to the teachings of Islam. In return, the Pakistani authorities made three demands before the TTP. These include accepting state orders, laying down arms, and issuing a public apology for the terrorist acts committed by them. If these demands are met, officials said they would consider granting him an apology. Earlier this month, Pakistan's Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry announced that there had been a complete ceasefire between the government and the TTP.

TTP also known as the Pakistani Taliban, is a banned terrorist group based on the Afghan-Pakistan border. The group has carried out several major terrorist attacks in Pakistan and is reportedly using Afghan soil to plot terrorist attacks in Pakistan. The Pakistani government is now using the influence of the Taliban in Afghanistan to negotiate a peace deal with the TTP and try to stop the violence. The Pakistan PM revealed in an interview last month that the Pakistani government is now using the influence of the Taliban to try to negotiate a peace deal with the TTP and stop the violence. Many politicians and people who became victims of terrorism also criticized him for this. Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid defended the government's move, saying that talks are being held for a good Taliban. During the national security briefing, parliament was told that a final peace deal with the TTP would be done only after all conditions were met and that traditional jirga would be used to ensure they did not take up arms again, the paper said.
