Major Amir distances himself from TTP-Govt peace process


Member of government negotiating committee Major (r) Muhammad Amir has distanced himself from negotiation process.
The Taliban-Government dialogue process has been hit by a set back, as the most important member of government committee has distanced himself from the process.
While informing media about his decision, he said that certain members of committee are using this platform for their
personal and political gains.
He further said that he warned and tried to convince other members to principally follow the process but his requests
were not taken seriously. As a result of which, he is distancing himself from the whole process.
Sources also said that he will not provide any further assistance in the process.
He accused that Taliban committee members were disclosing everything to media due to which the dialogue process was not moving forward as it should have been.

“I have to say with regret that some negotiators are using this dialogue process for their political mileage”, Major (r) Amir said in a statement issued in Islamabad.

He said he would soon meet in Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan and would take him into confidence over the decision.
