Peace talks between Pakistan, Taliban begin

Published: 02.06.14, 13:09 / Israel News

Officials say much-delayed peace talks between representatives of the government and Pakistani Taliban militants have begun in the capital, ending a deadlock in getting negotiations started.


The talks were to be originally held Tuesday, but delayed after the government negotiators sought some clarification about the identities of the Taliban's negotiating team.


Prominent pro-Taliban cleric Maulana Samiul Haq is leading the Taliban team.


A member of the Taliban committee and the government committee said their meeting started Thursday in Islamabad, speaking anonymously to avoid disrupting the talks. (AP)
