Pak rejects 'ceasefire offer' by Taliban
Islamabad, Dec 28 (ANI): Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik has rejected offer of a ceasefire by the Taliban.
The Pakistani Taliban's spokesman outlined conditions for a ceasefire, which said the country must stop its involvement in the war pitting Afghan insurgents against the Kabul government and refocus on a war of "revenge" against India.
The demands, mentioned in a letter, also included the adoption of Islamic law and a break with the United States.
Malik, however, said that the government would not accept any offer of a ceasefire unless it came from the Pakistan Taliban leader, the Daily Times reports.
Malik said he rejects all these offers, and any future claims, of Ihsanullah Ihsan, unless and until Hakeemullah Mehsud owns them himself.
According to the paper, the ceasefire conditions, confirmed by spokesman Ihsan, said Pakistan should rewrite its laws and constitution according to Islamic law. (ANI)
