Afghanistan's TTP "sanctuaries," according to the Pakistani army, pose a serious security risk

 ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's military brass concluded at a corps commanders' conference in Rawalpindi on Monday that the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP)'s safe haven in Afghanistan was one of the main factors affecting the country's security. The conference was presided over by army chief General Syed Asim Munir.

"The safe-havens and freedom of activity accessible to the psychological militants of prohibited TTP and different gatherings of that kind in an adjoining nation and accessibility of most recent weapons to the fear based oppressors were noted as significant reasons affecting security of Pakistan," said a proclamation gave by the Between Administrations Advertising (ISPR), the tactical's media wing.

This is the second time in less than a week that the Pakistani army has blamed the Taliban-led Afghan government for providing a safe haven for the Pakistan Taliban, who are blamed for the recent terrorist attacks on army bases in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the two provinces where violence has increased since the TTP called off the ceasefire with Islamabad in November of last year.
