The Pakistani premier gave his remarks before leaving for London where he is expected to meet U.S. President Barack Obama. The two leaders are going to discuss the security threats and the steps taken to cater the problem in this region. Sharif will also explain his position on conducting peace talks with Taliban militants who are suspected to have killed at least 83 people in a terrorist attack on Sunday.
The majority highly condemned the brutal attack while the government formed a committee tasked with devising strategies to protect minorities living in Pakistan. Although Sharif won the confidence of all political groups and military leadership to conduct peace talks with the terrorists, the attack is expected to question the feasibility of his decision.
