Pakistani government confirms the dialogue with taliban


Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that talks have begun with Taliban . Pakistani High Commission said in a statement that Prime Minister told British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg in a meeting during his visit that he hoped and prayed the dialogue works within the constitutional framework of Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif added that the government could not see the innocent people being killed in the streets of Pakistan and want to solve the issue. Earlier this week Sharif took part in a trilateral meeting with his British counterpart David Cameron and the Afghan President Hamid Karzai in London. After winning parliamentary elections in May, Sharif's conservative Pakistan Muslim League political party has advocated negotiations with the Taliban as a preferred means of ending their decade-old insurgency. More than 50,000 Pakistan soldiers, civilians, and militants have been killed in the unrest..
