Pakistan to work with Afghan govt to contain TTP threat: PM

by admin

Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Friday Pakistan would work with the authorities in Afghanistan to halt Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and other sources of terrorism emanating from the neighbouring country.

He said Pakistan was “extremely concerned” about the threat of terrorism from Afghanistan, particularly from the TTP, which had carried out thousands of attacks against Pakistan from the Afghan territory with the sponsorship and support of “certain hostile intelligence agencies”.

In an exclusive conversation with senior journalist Tom O’Connor of the Newsweek magazine via email, the prime minister pointed out that the “plethora of terrorist groups” could take advantage of the conflict in Afghanistan.
