KARACHI: The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s ceasefire of 40 days which it announced to initiate peace talks with the government has expired.

The militant outfit denounced terrorist attacks which took place during the ceasefire period.

The TTP had declared ceasefire after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced to hold talks with the militant organization in a bid to establish peace in the country.

However, during the ceasefire, only one formal meeting was held between the Taliban and the government committee.

The TTP had announced ten-day extension after the expiry of one-month ceasefire. They, however, said that the government had not responded positively over their ceasefire.
