PESHAWAR: Professor Ibrahim, member of Taliban negotiation committee, said on Wednesday that the ceasefire would continue during dialogue process and there should be no delay in holding further talks in order to avoid complications.
Talking to the media, Prof Ibrahim said the government had not yet contacted the Taliban committee. The dialogue process hinges on the release of non-combatants, he added.
He said the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan had shared a list of non-combatants, mostly women and children.
He said the government authorities had denied the claim and called for release of some high-profile figures held hostage by the Taliban.
