First disarm,then only talk possible: Pak Minister
He however did not give details but said the government is serious about making progress in dialogue with militants for the cause of peace though no talks would be held if the extremists continued wielding arms. Some anti-peace forces are involved in hatching conspiracies and activities to destabilise Pakistan, he claimed.
Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani had recently offered peace talks to all militant groups, including the Taliban, if they "decommissioned" themselves.
Meanwhile, responding to a question, Malik said he had written a letter to the Chief Secretary of Punjab province to detain Lashkar-e-Jhangvi leader Ishaq Malik, who was recently released from prison, and to arrest his nine associates. Malik had been detained and further action was being taken in this regard, he said.
