TTP talks: Up to Pakistan to determine path forward: US

08 February, 2014

WASHINGTON: Following the start of talks between the government and the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, the United States has said it is up to Islamabad to determine the path forward.

"It's up to the government of Pakistan to determine the path forward," State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki remarked when asked about the talks initiated with Tehreek-e-Taliban. Asked about future designation of the Taliban as an entity, after the talks, the spokesperson replied: "It's an internal matter for Pakistan. I would point you to them on any updates on what's happening with talks that may or may not be happening."

Clarifying a travel alert issued this week, the spokesperson said it was updated with the new information that the United States has "lifted the ordered departure status of US government personnel from the Consulate General in Lahore".
