Pakistan urges Taliban to extradite ‘terror leaders’

Pakistan on Thursday called on the Taliban to take swift and effective measures against “terrorist groups” and extradite their leaders to Islamabad.

This request follows multiple blasts in various parts of Balochistan, including the provincial capital Quetta, which left at least one person dead and four others injured.

During her weekly briefing in Islamabad on Thursday, Pakistan Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch expressed ongoing concerns about “terror threat” from Afghanistan.

“Pakistan has been raising concerns over the terror threat emanating from Afghanistan,” she stated.

Responding to queries about the recent killing of nine Pakistani workers in Iran, Baloch described it as an inhumane act condemned by both Pakistan and Iran. She emphasized Pakistan’s expectation for the Iranian authorities to provide details of the incident upon completion of their investigation.

This development occurs amid the Taliban’s denial of any connections with Tehreek Talian Pakistan and other terrorist groups, assuring that Afghanistan will not pose a threat to neighboring countries.
