Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan convened a meeting which will discuss matters relating to the next phase of direct talks with the Taliban.
Yesterday, the TTP had extended its March ceasefire until April 10, following the release of a batch of low-level prisoners by the government.
“Tehreek-e-Taliban is once again showing seriousness and responsibility, and in order to wait for an answer from the government, is extending the ceasefire until April 10,” TTP spokesman Shahidullah Shahid said.
“Mujahideen are being ordered to cease all activities against the government and security forces for this period.”
The Taliban announced a month-long ceasefire on March 1, but commanders were divided on whether to extend it, saying the government had failed to meet their demand
