Nawaz Sharif says terror attacks 'not good omen' for peace talks with Taliban

Islamabad, Sept. 23 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said terror incidents, like the attack on Peshawar church, are not a good omen for the intended peace dialogue with the Taliban.

Nawaz expressed grief and shock over the brutality of the terrorists for killing innocent citizens in the church of Peshawar on Sunday.
