LONDON: Hours after the deadliest attack on Christian community in Pakistan on Sunday, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced that the government and nation was unable to proceed any further (on the proposed dialogue with the Taliban) with the mindset and wish that was based on good intention.

“We had proposed the process of dialogue with good intention and this enjoyed the backing of all the political parties,” Nawaz Sharif said while talking to the media men after arriving in London from Pakistan.

He said incidents like attacks on a Church in Peshawar are not a good omen for the intended dialogue. “These attackers are enemies of the country,” he said.

The Prime Minister is on his way to the US to attend UN General Assembly session scheduled to be held on September 27.
