7 killed in NW Pakistan blast

Foreign Minister urges US to hold talks with Taliban to bring peace in Afghanistan

Bajaur is one of the seven tribal agencies that makes up Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas along its volatile border with Afghanistan.

On August 11, a powerful bomb blast killed at least three people and wounded more than 20 others in the Char Mang district of Bajaur, authorities said. The driver was injured in the blast, the political administration said.

Officials said the administrator of the Mamoond sub-district, Fawad Ali, was being driven to a border village to attend a traditional assembly of tribal elders when his vehicle struck an improvised explosive device.

Pakistani Army have launched a massive search operation in the area to nab the blast executors and have cordoned the area.

Trump wants lawmakers to 'move fast' on taxes
Many conservatives, however, have been unwilling to sign off on a budget until they see the full details of the tax proposal. So far, the White House and GOP negotiators have areas of overlap but also areas of disagreement in their tax cut approach.

Pakistani militant umbrella group Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) claimed responsibility for the explosion.

Bajaur Agency has seen intense fighting between militants and security forces in the past. Security in the region has improved in recent years after the Pakistani military mounted offensives there against the al Qaeda-linked Pakistani Taliban, which is considered the country's biggest security threat.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal in Islamabad, he said peace talks with the Taliban could be arranged if Washington work with countries in the region that have influence over the militant group.
