ISLAMABAD- Taliban negotiator Professor Ibrahim Khan today asked Pakistan People's Party (PPP) patron in-chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to refrain from making harsh statements about the peace talks and Taliban.

"On one hand, Bilawal Bhutto demands the release of Shehbaz Taseer and Haider Gilani, while on the other hand, he uses harsh language against the Taliban," Ibrahim said. A conducive atmosphere should be created so that negotiators could demand the release of abductees to Taliban, he added.
