ISLAMABAD, Oct 10 : Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday said he is trying to revive peace talks with the Taliban after the latest round was derailed by untimely news of the death of leader Mullah Omar.
Islamabad organised the first set of direct peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government in July, but another round was abandoned after the announcement of the cleric's death.
Since then the insurgents have unleashed a wave of violence, including seizing the northern Afghan provincial capital Kunduz in their most spectacular victory since being toppled from power in 2001.
"We are now trying to resume the (peace) process and pray to God to crown our efforts with success," Sharif said in televised remarks to the media from the eastern city of Lahore.
