ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar once again reiterated his call to the Afghan Taliban government to take action against the Tehreek-e-Taliban.
In an interview with Geo News that is set to be telecast on Sunday, Kakar said that the Afghan Taliban would have to decide whether to hand the TTP over to Pakistan or effectively deal with them on their own.
The caretaker prime minister highlighted that the TTP primarily operates from within Afghanistan rather than the Central Asian States.
Kakar expressed his dissatisfaction with the Afghan Taliban’s passive stance, stating that it is unacceptable for them to remain idle while the TTP utilizes Afghan territory to launch attacks against Pakistan.
Furthermore, Kakar disclosed that Afghan representatives had engaged in what he referred to as ‘mock’ negotiations with the TTP two years ago.
He asserted that religious leaders had voiced support for the government’s policy on the TTP during a meeting with Army Chief General Asim Munir.
