Spiraling terror attacks from Pak Taliban makes Nawaz govt rethink over dialogue plan

Islamabad, July 3 (ANI): The newly elected Nawaz Sharif government is in a fix over reaching out to Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) for dialogue, particularly after the latest spiral of terror attacks by the group and subsequent claims of involvement.

Sources said that the latest terror acts has hampered the government's resolve to contact militants and put them in a dilemma as how to proceed ahead in the given circumstances.

According to the Daily Times, immediately after winning the historic May 11 polls, PML-N hinted at holding talks with the TTP.

The government even approached JUI-F Maulana Fazalur Rahman and JUI-S head Maulana Samiullah Haq to act as a bridge between the government and the TTP militants.

Soon after taking office, Sharif government faced the wrath of militants who carried out terrorism activities at a massive scale especially the incident of Nanga Parbat in which many foreign tourists were killed.

The incidents have put a serious question mark on any chance for holding talks with TTP. (ANI)
