PESHAWAR: Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) today rejected the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) government’s offer to open an office in the province.
According to reports, Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervaiz Khattak repeated Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan’s offer for Taliban to open a proper office.
Addressing media in Peshawar, Khattak said provincial government can allocate space to Taliban to open office if federation wants, adding that the offer isn’t limited to office space only.
However the efforts proved to be one-sided as Taliban politely turned down the offer saying they never demanded office space anywhere in the country and that they don’t need it.
Outlawed Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesperson Shahidullah Shahid said that Taliban do not need an office.
On the other hand, TTP nominated peace dialogue committee member Maulana Yousaf Shah says Taliban are ready for proper negotiations.
