Pakistan officials meet with Taliban leaders


PAKISTAN (WKOW) -- Pakistan is taking its most ambitious step yet to address terror concerns. Officials met with representatives of the Pakistani Taliban Tuesday.

According to the Washington Post, if the preliminary talks are successful the country's Prime Minister might order a military offensive to regain control of the areas now held by the Taliban. Meanwhile, the militant group is circulating a list of 10 demands it wants to pursue in the talks.

The Taliban is responsible for a decade long insurgency that has claimed more than 45,000 lives.
