Some neighbouring countries trying to sabotage Pak govt-TTP peace talks, says lawmaker

Islamabad, Feb. 14: Certain neighbouring countries are using their agents to destabilise Pakistan and de-track the government’s ongoing dialogue process with the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), senior lawmaker has said.

Leader of the House in Senate, Raja Zafarul Haq, made the comments while responding to points of order raised by certain Senators.

Haq said Pakistan’s political parties had given their consent to hold dialogue with the TTP and that a consensus existed in that regard, Dawn News reports.

According to the report, negotiators from the government and the TTP are currently engaged in peace talks aimed at ending the militants’ insurgency that has claimed thousands of lives. (ANI)
