Miranshah: A Taliban shura has warned the Pakistan government that a military operation in North Waziristan Agency would lead to a war in the region.

The Taliban shura said it had been honouring the agreement it signed with the government and had not attacked security forces since then, but Islamabad was violating the agreement to serve its vested interests.
