PESHAWAR - Baitullah Mehsud, chief of Tehrik Taliban Pakistan, has denied involvement in assassination of PPP Chairperson Benazir Bhutto. He also declared that fighting against US and NATO forces in Afghanistan will continue "We respect late Mohtarama Benazir Bhutto in the light of her political status," Baitullah Mehsud remarked during a detailed chat with media in Kotaki area of South Waziristan Agency on Saturday. A group of people from both electronic and print media on the invitation of Baitullah Mehsud travelled to the area. In response to a question, Baitullah Mehsud expressed ignorance about the elements involved in killing of Benazir Bhutto. He, however, said, "Such elements were earlier involved in killing of Benazir Bhutto's father and brothers."  He, however, termed Benazir Bhutto's murder a great loss to the country. When questioned as to whether he supports the PPP demand for inquiry into Benazir Bhutto's murder case through United Nations, Baitullah Mehsud said, "The UN is a helpless and powerless institution." Even he termed the UN as slave of America and for these reasons they would not extend any sort of cooperation in the proposed investigation. Referring to the government's claim regarding involvement of Taliban in kidnapping of Pakistan's Ambassador to Afghanistan, Baitullah Mehsud  denied such allegations. "Tariq Aziz Ud Din was not in our custody. He was abducted by a group of Taliban and we benefited because of the release of friends in return of the ambassador." At this stage, Baitullah Mehsud  claimed, "from 30 to 40 personnel of the security forces are still in our captivity," and on the other hand not a single Talib was in the custody of the government. Referring to the recent deals between TTP and government, Baitullah Mehsud said, "Fighting between Pakistan and Taliban was harmful to both Islam and Pakistan." On account of this, he said that they brought an end to such fighting.  He said that Pakistan was an independent and sovereign country and its rulers must take decisions on their own, otherwise the mutual agreements would be nothing else but a futile exercise. In response to a question, Baitullah Mehsud justified what he called "Jihad against the US-led forces in Afghanistan." He said that Islam didn't believe in boundaries. He also said that Jihad would be continued in Afghanistan against the US forces.
