Taliban mediating between Pakistan and TTP: Mutaqqi

The Afghan Taliban are mediating between Pakistan and the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) but no agreement has been reached so far, said Afghanistan’s acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi on Sunday.

In an interview with BBC News Urdu, the official representing the regime in Kabul said the Afghan Taliban were acting as mediators on the desire of both the parties in Pakistan.

Muttaqi said the two sides had not yet reached an agreement, but the process has had a “good” start, leading to the announcement of a month-long ceasefire.

He hoped that the process would not encounter any obstacles in the future and that relations between the government and the TTP would improve.
