‘Taliban still ‘serious, sincere’ for talks’

Spokesman says talks in larger interest of Islam, Pakistan

MIRANSHAH – The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban on Sunday said that it was still ‘serious’ and ‘sincere’ for peace talks with the government despite the fact that the North Waziristan tribal agency was being targeted by the jet fighters.

In a statement issued here, Taliban spokesman Shahidullah Shahid said that Taliban had started talks with all ‘seriousness’ and ‘sincerity’ in the larger interest of Islam and Pakistan. “We never adopt a non serious attitude during peace talks,” he said.

The spokesman said that all necessary measures including declaration of unilateral ceasefire were taken for the creation of congenial atmosphere for the talks. He said that the Tehreek-e-Taliban was still sincere for continuation of talks despite bombings. “Our stand in this regard is like an open book,” he said.
