ISLAMABAD: Taliban nominated dialogue committee member Professor Ibrahim, on Thursday said that Corps Commander Conference had signaled to accept every decision made by the government but if there are reservations over prisoners’ release then army should participate directly in the dialogue process.
Talking to media in Peshawar, he said that dialogue process has been delayed because the government is facing difficulties over the issue of prisoners’ release adding that thousands of prisoners are being held at detention centres, and these detention centres should be handed over to civil authorities.
Professor Ibrahim added that army would have to accept the every decision of the government if it wants to keep itself away from the dialogues process of the government and the Taliban.
He also revealed that confidence is lacking between the government and the Taliban with regard to dialogues.
Ibrahim informed media that no date and venue has been decided for meeting with Taliban shura, however, the meeting would be held soon.
