Pakistan has achieved significant success in preventing terrorism and violent activities of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) from Afghan soil, reported 24News HD TV channel on Saturday.

The Afghan Taliban Saturday formed a high-level ‘Tripartite Commission’ to sling out TTP terrorists from Afghanistan on Pakistan’s serious concerns.

According to a report by Voice of America, the commission was formed on the instructions of the Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada on the complaints of terror activities in Pakistan using Afghan soil.

According to some sources, the Afghan Taliban had also issued a warning to the TTP to settle issues with Pakistan because there was no place for any terrorist organization in Afghanistan as per the Taliban’s announced policy.

As per the report, the tripartite commission would work to deter anti-Pakistan terrorists from violence and send them back to their homeland (Pakistan), along with their families.

On the other hand, Pakistan had categorically clarified that any demand from the banned TTP would not be met and they would be pardoned in accordance with the constitution and law of the country.

Reacting to the report, Afghan Taliban spokesman Sohail Shaheen said that Pakistan's reservations were justified and the Taliban's policy was fully clear that Afghan soil would not be used against any country, including Pakistan.

Whether it was the banned TTP or any other terrorist organization, there was no place for it in Afghanistan, the Afghan Taliban’s spokesman concluded.
