Islamabad: Pakistan plans to form a "working group" this month to hold peace talks with the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and other Islamist militant groups, in an effort to end continuous violence in the country, according to a media report.

The working group is expected to be announced after an all-party conference scheduled to be held later this month to build a consensus on the proposed national security policy, a media report said.

According to the draft security policy, the government would devise a mechanism to reintegrate those who either shun the 'so-called jihadi organizations’ or who got disengaged from such acts on any account.

The government led by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has already announced that it is willing to negotiate with TTP and other 'reconcilable groups' for the sake of peace.
