Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said he still wants to hold peace talks with the Taliban, despite a wave of deadly attacks in recent months.

Sharif named a four-member team to pursue negotiations with the militants.

In a rare address to the National Assembly, he said "terrorism" must be defeated, either by talks or force, and he was giving peace a last chance.

Pakistan's Taliban vowed more attacks after their leader was killed last year but say they are considering the offer.
