PESHAWAR: The spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban, Ehsanullah Ehsan said on Saturday that there was no chance of dialogue with the government.
In an interview to Newsweek magazine, the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman said that after the killing of Hakimullah Mehsud there could be no peace talks. “It would be too generous to say that the possibility of peace talks is zero; the chances are, in fact, below zero.”
The TTP spokesman said he was 110 percent sure that Pakistan’s security organizations were involved in the November 1 drone strike in which Hakimullah Mehsud was killed. He added that 80 percent of information and ground intelligence for every drone strike was provided by Pakistani security organizations. Ehsan referred to the politicians as not being in charge: “If the politicians are not in charge, how is it possible to talk with these helpless and incompetent creatures?”
The TTP spokesman further said that the militant organization would use all its capabilities to avenge the death of Hakimullah Mehsud and target security organizations and everyone who is against the Taliban.
