ISLAMABAD: The government and the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Shura will not meet today to pursue peace talks on account of bad weather conditions, DawnNews reported.
Jamaat-i-Islami Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief and a member of the Taliban talks committee Professor Mohammad Ibrahim confirmed that talks between the two sides were postponed for today as it was not possible to travel due to bad weather.
Meanwhile, speaking to media representatives outside the Al-Markaz-i-Islami in Peshawar, Ibrahim said the negotiation on prisoners between the government and the Taliban would be very beneficial for peace talks.
He also said the situation in Pakistan was still perilous and that hidden hands were taking advantage of it.
Ibrahim said the ceasefire between the government and Taliban was a major breakthrough and a proposed meeting of the government’s negotiators with the Taliban Shura would be a second major breakthrough.
Ibrahim said the government nor the Taliban had presented any list of demands.
He, however, said the Taliban had assured that groups opposing dialogue would be encouraged to join the peace process.
