ISLAMABAD/KABUL: Afghan Taliban has formed a three-member commission to look into Islamabad’s complaints that the banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), commonly known as the Pakistani Taliban, is using Afghan soil to plot cross-border terrorist attacks.

According to Voice of America (VOA) report, Taliban chief Haibatullah Akhundzada set up a three-member commission.

“TTP leaders are being warned (by the Afghan Taliban Commission) to settle their problems with Pakistan and return to the country along with their families in exchange for a possible amnesty by the Pakistani government,” Voice of America reported citing sources in Islamabad.

“We have been taking up the issue of the use of Afghan soil by the TTP for terrorist activities in Pakistan with the previous Afghan government and we will continue raising the issue with the future Afghan government as well to ensure that TTP is not provided any space in Afghanistan to operate against Pakistan,” Pakistani Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said on Friday.
