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?

Peace Talk

Yes, Pakistan's govt. should give peace a chance. We have been a victim of terrorism for years now and we had been trying to fight them and win them over, but its not working. We are loosing lives, getting un-rest all over Pakistan and economically getting badly effected. For how long do you think this war will keep going on. As Imran Khan said today that it will take another 9 years to fight them and there will be no result. I don't think we have any other options left. Its high time to resolve the matters via peace talks.

Taliban Talk

I don't think there is any room left now and Pak Army should take the government in confidence and should take serious action against these barbarians. Sri Lanka did the same with Tamil terrorists and removed their all signs from their country and don't forget, Pak Air Force played a vital role in helping them to achieve this objective.
