Talks with Taliban and Attacks
23 September, 2013
Recently, a conference of Pakistan's political parties held under the supervision of new Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and they called for talks with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). In response, the TTP initially hailed the initiative but issued a series of tough conditions for taking part in talks, including the release of all of its members held in Pakistani jails and the complete withdrawal of government forces from the tribal areas along the Afghan border. Moreover, the militants carried out a series of attacks in the country's restive northwest that left seven soldiers and police dead, including a general commanding an army division and last attack on Church.
By continuing attacks and demanding conditions for negotiations, the road to peace looks as long and tortuous as ever.
Do you think, taliban working on froeign agenda?
Should Pakistan's govt. give peace a chance?
