The army’s declaration stated that they consider the freedom of action of TTP militants in Afghanistan and their access to the latest weapons a serious concern for Pakistan’s security.
The Pakistan Army’s public relations announced that the 261st meeting of the army commanders of the country was held under the leadership of Syed Asim Munir, the Chief of Army Staff, in the city at the army’s headquarters, and they discussed the security challenges in the country.
A section of the Pakistan Army’s declaration mentioned, “The sanctuaries and freedom of action of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan militants and other similar groups in a neighboring country and the availability of the latest weapons to the terrorists were cited as serious points of concern for Pakistan’s security.”
The Pakistan Army has declared that it will deal with all insurgent groups, facilitators, and their supporters with full force.
The Pakistan Army had requested the Afghan Taliban to take serious action against the members of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, but this request was met with indifference by the Afghan Taliban.
The Pakistan Army reports ongoing attacks by Afghan militants linked to Tehreek-e-Taliban on their forces, with further assaults planned. Concurrently, the Taliban’s invitation to Maulana Fazlur Rehman to Afghanistan aims to strengthen ties and trust between the countries, especially post-election.
