According to the media sources, Pakistan and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has reached common ground for the ceasefire between the security forces of Pakistan and TTP militants.
Media sources reveal that Pakistan negotiated with TTP in Afghanistan, and reached a truce to a ceasefire after the release of militant organization prisoners from Pakistan’s captivity.
As per the sources, the Taliban asked for five of their senior leaders to be released by Pakistan’s government so the Taliban can feel that Pakistan is “serious” about the negotiation and agreements. Pakistan has offered to release at least 100 prisoners of TTP including the five senior leaders to show their seriousness about the ongoing negotiation.
As of now, no prisoners have been released because there were some issues in the process and the transfer of prisoners to Afghanistan from where the prisoners will be released fully. Sources revealed that so many prisoners had no contact with their family members but after 13 years they were allowed to call their families.
Very close sources to the matter have claimed that there have been very meaningful meetings between Pakistan and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan to reach a truce. Meeting were held in Afghanistan as sources say that the Afghan Taliban is playing a very important role to accommodate the talks and discussion between both parties.
To start the negotiations, Pakistan sent a two-member delegation to Afghanistan to meet with the TTP top leaders. From there on peace talks started and gradually built up after a series of meetings held in Afghanistan.
Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan during an interview with a foreign media outlet revealed that Pakistan was in talks with some group of TTP. This revelation was met with criticism from the opposition parties as they said that the opposition should be taken in confidence as this is an issue of national security.
