The government is in talks with some groups of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan for reconciliation, Prime Minister Imran Khan said Friday.

In an interview with TRT World in Islamabad, the PM said that there are different groups which form the TTP and some of them want to talk to the Pakistan government for peace. “So, we are in talks with them. It’s a reconciliation process.”

When asked if Pakistan was asking them to lay down their arms the premier was affirmative. “Yes, we forgive them and they become normal citizens.”

Referring to TTP attacks on the country’s armed forces, he said that they were just a “spate of attacks”.

We might now reach a conclusion in the end, but for now, we are in talks, the prime minister revealed. Answering a question on whether the Afghan Taliban were aiding the reconciliation process, he pointed: “Since the negotiations were taking place in Afghanistan, in that sense, yes.”

The story is being updated.
