“Our problem now is the TTP, the TTP is a threat, not their frontline leadership but the second or third-row leaders have said that the Afghan Taliban will say stay with us but Pakistan Do not act against,” he said.

He also said that the Afghan Taliban’s desire to be involved in its own C-Pack and other development projects could certainly be considered as it would benefit the entire region.

He said the Taliban had made it clear that India would no longer be allowed to use Afghan territory, adding that it would end the ease with which India used to carry out terrorism in Pakistan.
