The Pakistani government and a Taliban-nominated team have met formally for the first time as they aim to end a years-long insurgency in the south Asian country.
Meeting in Islamabad Thursday, the government laid out its five conditions, including ending hostilities, and said the search for peace had begun.
The Taliban-nominated team agreed to relay the government's views to the militant group's leadership in Pakistan's northwest.
Taliban insurgents have been fighting to overturn the Pakistani government and establish strict Islamic rule since 2007.
Thousands have been killed in Taliban attacks since then.
