US hints at potential strikes against TTP inside Afghanistan

Washington: The US has hinted at a possible military attack against the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) inside Afghanistan, saying that Washington wants to deal with regional security threats together with Islamabad.During their respective news briefings at the Pentagon and Washington on Tuesday, the US spokesperson said that talks are ongoing to increase the military capability of the Pakistan Army.Pentagon spokesman Major General Patrick Ryder said that airstrikes against the TTP inside Afghanistan are related to Pakistan’s independent decisions. “It will be Pakistan’s decision how it addresses national security issues.”He said that he would not discuss Pakistan’s internal decisions, adding that we have a long-standing relationship with Pakistan and a security cooperation relationship. We will work together with Pakistan to prevent regional terrorism.In response to a question, Ryder clarified, “I will not get involved in Pakistani domestic decisions. As you know, there is concern throughout the region when it comes to terrorism. But as it relates to Pakistan’s sovereign decisions on how they protect their borders and how they address security within the country, I will have to refer you (the reporter) to them.Again, we have a security cooperation relationship in this regard. I have nothing special or new to announce except to say that, as we have for a very long time, we will continue to have these discussions and consider ways in which we can prevent regional terrorism and Let’s work together to stop it.”
