Pak Taliban denies 'cease-fire' with govt. reports

Islamabad , Thu, 24 Nov 2011 ANI

Islamabad, Nov 24 (ANI): The Pakistani Taliban's spokesman has refuted claims by other commanders that the group had agreed to a cease-fire and exploratory peace talks with the government.


The media reports had given rise to speculation that one of the country's deadliest terror groups was splitting into factions.


Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan however, negated such speculations by insisting that an attack on a police station in the northwest was carried out by the Pakistani Taliban, the Daily Times reports.


Two officers were killed and four others were wounded in that incident, police said. The attack came two days after a senior Pakistani Taliban commander had allegedly told a media organisation that the group had declared a cease-fire across the country a month ago to encourage a peace talks with the government.


Yesterday, Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik had also denied a ceasefire claim by insisting that although the Government had asked the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) for dialogue, no talks could take place until the militant outfit decided to give up their arms and terrorism.


"There is nothing formal regarding talks with Taliban. The Taliban usually send messages to us and I also sometimes conveyed them a message so that peace could prevail. But it is clear if the Taliban want to shake hands with us they would have to get rid of their arms," he had added. (ANI)
