Senior Taliban leader Suhail Shaheen on Sunday categorically denied that the Pakistani Taliban or the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militants are in Afghanistan, adding that banned outfit is present in Pakistan’s tribal areas and hence Islamabad’s responsibility, “not ours.” Pakistan, on the other hand, alleges that the TTP uses Afghan soil to carry out attacks against Pakistan.
Since the fall of Kabul in August 2021, the emboldened TTP have carried out deadly attacks against Pakistan’s security forces and civilians. Islamabad has repeatedly asked the interim Afghan government led by the Taliban to rein in the TTP militants and take action against the group. Senior Pakistani officials have threatened cross-border action to take out alleged TTP strongholds in Afghanistan, souring relations further between the two countries.
