ISLAMABAD: Prominent leader of politico-religious party Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and member of Taliban committee, Professor Muhammad Ibrahim Khan, on Tuesday urged the resumption of negotiation process despite initiating war after current deadlock between government and Taliban.
In an interview with a private TV channel, Professor Ibrahim said attempts were underway to resume the dialogue process which had entered a deadlock and informal talks were being held with the members of the government committee in this regard.
He further said that there was a possibility of a meeting between the two negotiating teams in the next few days.
Professor Ibrahim Khan also said that no stance of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) had come forward as yet regarding the issue of an operation.
Earlier, Professor Ibrahim had said: “I don’t rule out the possibility of resumption of talks at any stage.”
”We will keep appealing to both the government and the Taliban to stop following the path of violence and resume the stalled dialogue.”
Moreover, Rahimullah Yousufzai, a member of the government mediating team, said the process could resume if the Taliban agreed to a ceasefire without preconditions and explain the deaths of the abducted soldiers.
