Pakistan asks Afghanistan to hand over TTP terrorists

Afghan soil used in attack on Chinese nationals: Mohsin Naqvi

Pakistan demanded the interim Taliban government in Afghanistan to hand over banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP) terrorists involved in the Besham terror attack on Chinese nationals to Islamabad.

On Sunday, Federal Interior Minister Mohsin Naqvi confirmed that the recent attack on Chinese citizens in Besham, Pakistan, was carried out using Afghan territory.

Speaking to the media alongside officials from the National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) in Lahore, Mohsin Naqvi stated that the attack raised serious concerns for Pakistan.

He emphasized the importance of Pakistan-China cooperation, particularly in the context of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

“We are certain that China is working for the betterment of both our countries,” Naqvi said.

Federal Minister confirmed that the attackers specifically targeted Chinese security personnel, suggesting a planned attack. He revealed that Pakistan has raised the issue with the Afghan interim government but has not received any positive response.

Given the investigation report, the interior minister said that the TTP operated the Besham terror attack on Chinese citizens from inside Afghanistan.

“[Pakistan has formally] requested the interim government in Afghanistan to arrest the leadership of [banned] TTP,” he added.

Mohsin Naqvi informed that Pakistan has increased security along its borders, acknowledging the involvement of external forces seeking to destabilize Pakistan.

Federal Minister also highlighted the exploitation of the Afghan government’s weakness by these forces, allowing terrorist groups like the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) to operate in border areas.
