Sources have dominated out the opportunity of Pakistan accepting any TTP calls for, insisting the amnesty could be supplied consistent with the nation’s structure and legislation, which might require the militants to give up their weapons.
The US and the United Nations have listed the TTP as a worldwide terrorist organisation.
According to the February 2020 deal reached between the Taliban and the US in Doha, the militant group can’t allow regional or transnational terrorist teams to make use of Afghan soil to threaten world safety.
“This concern is respectable, and our coverage is evident that we’ll not permit anybody to make use of the soil of Afghanistan towards any neighboring nation, together with Pakistan. So, they shouldn’t have any concern,” Taliban spokesperson Suhail Shaheen instructed media companies.
Shaheen added that neither the TTP nor some other terrorist teams “will have no place in our country and that’s a clear message to all.”

The Taliban want help from regional and worldwide nations now that they’re in charge of Afghanistan.

“Can they survive if they turn their guns against us and support TTP? This is not possible. Our trade routes are a lifeline for them, for landlocked Afghanistan,” they added.
