PESHAWAR: The top advisory council of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is set to agree to announce the suspension of hostilities against the government, one of the three members of the TTP negotiation committee told The Express Tribune on condition of anonymity on Thursday, adding that the announcement could possibly come as soon as Friday (today).While refusing to confirm when exactly the announcement would be made, the committee member said “Friday is an appropriate day for such good news, I think.”

He added that the declaration would come directly from the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) due to the absence of Maulana Samiul Haq, a leading member of the TTP negotiation committee, and declined to reveal any further details. More
