ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan has welcomed the designation of the leader of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Noor Wali Mehsud by the UN Security Committee 1267 Sanctions Committee on its ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions List.
In a statement issued on Friday, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said that the sanctions are being implemented by Pakistan in compliance with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and we hope that other Countries will also follow suit.
The Spokesperson said that the banned TTP is already an UN-designated terrorist organization and is responsible for numerous terrorist attacks inside Pakistan.
Aisha Farooqui said that Pakistan has defeated the TTP through comprehensive security operations in the Country.
However, the TTP continues to operate from outside Pakistan’s borders with support from its third-country facilitators.
“Pakistan will continue to pursue its policy of fighting against those involved in participating, financing, planning, facilitating and perpetrating terrorism,” the Spokesperson said.
