The resurgence of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan in the mountains of Swat has brought back the spectre of terror amongst the region’s people.
Decision was made after "substantial progress" in the talks with the 50-member team of elders from Pakistan in the Afghan capital, says outlawed Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan.
Border tensions between Pakistan and Afghanistan have risen since the Taliban seized power last year, with Islamabad claiming armed groups are carrying out regular attacks from Afghan soil.
The Taliban summoned Pakistan's ambassador in Kabul to protest against reported military strikes inside Afghanistan by Pakistani forces, the Afghan foreign ministry said.
No militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack but suspicion fell on Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan, a separate group from Afghanistan's Taliban.
At least five soldiers killed in Kurram district of northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Pakistani military says, in an attack claimed by TTP terror group.
In a recent Texas hostage-taking incident, the perpetrator demanded US officials release Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani woman imprisoned for alleged connections with Al Qaeda.
Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan accused the government of not honouring the truce and failing to release 102 of their fighters.
Little is known about the ongoing talks between Islamabad and the militant group, which is behind some of the deadliest attacks in the country's history.
The Taliban’s challenge is to root out Daesh's Khorasan wing without sowing the seeds of another long war.
Daesh’s Khorasan wing is primarily rooted in the Pakistani insurgency, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, a series of networks quite distinct from Afghanistan’s Taliban movement.
Kabul is hesitant to antagonise the “Pakistani Taliban” lest it supports the self-styled caliphate, yet the same group poses a threat to Islamabad.
