PESHAWAR: The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Shahidullah Shahid said on Wednesday that the Taliban would not accept any unilateral ceasefire condition and were ready to face the consequences of a military operation in North Waziristan.

He said the tribal people will be at a greater loss than the Taliban in case of a military operation due to bombings and will turn against the Pakistan Army.According to reports, commenting on the statement of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain, Shahidullah said Altaf plans a new strategy against the Taliban every morning.

The MQM chief on Tuesday called upon the Pakistan Army to take control of the country if the government did not support the operation against the Taliban.The TTP spokesman said the war would go on as long as the recommendations of politicians like Altaf Hussain would get implemented.

He said the Taliban were forced to take action after the government allied with the US.Meanwhile, Maulana Samiul Haq, head of the Taliban committee for peace talks with the government, contacted the TTP Shura to convey some requests on behalf of the committee. —Agencies

Our correspondent adds from Nowshera: Coordinator for the Taliban negotiations committee Maulana Yousaf Shah claimed that certain internal and external forces were against the restoration of peace in Pakistan.

Talking to reporters at the Darul Uloom Haqqania, he said the forces opposed to peace and development in Pakistan wanted to sabotage the peace talks. Maulana Yousaf said the government representatives and militants continued issuing statements, which was not helpful in bringing the two sides to a single platform for resolving the issue.

The Taliban committee coordinator said they had forwarded demands of the government-nominated committee to the Taliban committee and added that their response was expected within two days."The government demands have been conveyed to the Taliban and the situation will become clear after their (Taliban) response in the next few days," he said.
