RAWALPINDI: The corps commanders were meeting in Rawalpindi under the leadership of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani, DawnNews reported.

Sources said the meeting, which was underway at the GHQ, was discussing the peace talks’ offer given by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

All principal staff officers were also present at the meeting, sources said, adding that the meeting was discussing the TTP's talks offer as well as the Pak-Afghan border situation and the country's internal security situation.

Earlier last week, TTP spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan had told Dawn.com that the proscribed outfit was ready for conditional talks with the government.

Ehsan had stated that the TTP had always been ready for negotiations, adding that talks would only be possible if the Pakistani government would have the authority to hold them freely.

DawnNews moreover quoted sources as saying that the meeting would also discuss the matter of verification of voter lists along with security during the upcoming general elections.
