RAWALPINDI: Strongly and categorically refuting media reports, a spokesperson of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Tuesday that the army was not undertaking any kind of negotiations with the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) or its affiliated militant groups.

Such reports are concocted, baseless and unfounded, the spokesperson added.

Any contemplated negotiation or reconciliation process with militant groups has to be done by the government, the spokesperson concluded.
