Pakistan welcomes the designation of TTP leader in the sanctions list

Noor Wali Mehsud – leader of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan designated in Sanctions committee, here on Friday.

Pakistan welcomes the designation of Noor Wali Mehsud, the leader of TTP by the UNSC 1267 Sanctions Committee on its ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions List.

The sanctions are being implemented by Pakistan in compliance with the relevant UNSC resolutions and we hope that other countries will also follow suit.

TTP is already an UN-designated terrorist organization and is responsible for numerous terrorist attacks inside Pakistan.

Pakistan has defeated TTP through comprehensive security operations in the country. However, 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.
