ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira said here on Monday that if Imran Khan should engage in talks with the Tehrik-i-Taliban-i-Pakistan (TTP), the government would cooperate with him, DawnNews reported.

He added that the international community had condemned drone attacks by the United States as illegal and that the Pakistani government had also opposed the drone attacks since day one.
