Islamabad (Web Desk): After talks with the government, the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has declared a one-month ceasefire, starting from (Tuesday) November 9.

The spokesperson for the banned group said the ceasefire could be extended with the consent of the parties involved — the TTP and the government — while both parties should abide by the rules of the ceasefire.

Earlier, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry said that the government of Pakistan and banned TTP had agreed to a complete ceasefire under the peace talks.

He said that the negotiations with the TTP, mentioned by Prime Minister Imran Khan in an interview on October 1, 2021, have started and both sides have agreed to an absolute ceasefire under a deal.

The PTI-led government had earlier asked the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) to lay down their arms and surrender.

According to sources, the Taliban-led interim government in Afghanistan has played the role of the mediator in the peace talks.
