In the face of unrelenting terror attacks including one suicide blast in Karachi on Friday, the two committees negotiating peace have called for an immediate end to violence.

A statement issued after a meeting between the government appointed committee and the Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) nominees in the capital expressed concern over the terror attacks and said that such violence could bring the peace initiative to a halt.

The government appointed committee demanded an end to the terror strikes and the TTP committee members Maulana Samiul Haq and Maulana Yousuf Shah also appealed for peace and called for an end to the terror strikes. The TTP had admitted responsibility for the blast in Karachi which killed 13 policemen and on Friday too a suicide bomber targeted a Rangers vehicle injuring two persons.
