Video footage circulated on social media has shown TTP chief Noor Wali Mehsud claiming the group was a branch of the Taliban Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA), however, Afghan Taliban government spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid denied the claims.

Mujahid told the foreign media, “They are not, as an organization, part of IEA and we don’t share the same objectives.”

“We advise TTP to focus on peace and stability in their country. This is very important so they can prevent any chance for enemies to interfere in the region and in Pakistan. And we request Pakistan to look into their demands for the better of the region and Pakistan.”
