PAKISTAN-TALIBAN-TALKS:Peace talks between Pakistan and Taliban faltering-official
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Exploratory peace talks between Pakistan and al Qaeda-linked Taliban insurgents have made little progress, a senior security official told Reuters on Thursday.
The official said the group, seen as the biggest security threat to the strategic U.S. ally, had flatly rejected a demand that it work through tribal elders to reach a deal whereby fighters approach authorities and lay down their arms.
