Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif addresses party workers in Lahore, Pakistan on Monday, May 20, 2013. Pakistan’s presumptive prime minister called for peace talks with Taliban militants at war with the government Monday, potentially charting a course that could put him at odds with the country’s powerful army. Sharif said terrorism was one of the most serious problems plaguing the country and any offer by the Pakistani Taliban to talk “should be taken seriously.” (AP Photo/K.M. Chaudary)
