KARACHI: In a major breakthrough, the Afghan Taliban on Saturday confirmed that the Pakistani government and the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have reached an agreement on an “indefinite” ceasefire during ongoing peace talks in Kabul. Our greatest desire and effort is to bring about long-term peace and reconciliation between the two sides,” Mujahid, who also serves as the interim Taliban administration’s spokesman, stated. The Taliban spokesman also confirmed that a delegation of Pakistani tribal leaders recently visited Kabul in connection with the ongoing peace talks. The report deemed the TTP demands unviable since they would amount to ceding constitutional sovereignty in these regions to the militant network. The report also suggested that Pakistan “capitalise on internal pressures” within the TTP to repatriate their families who are currently displaced in Afghanistan.
