The Taliban are neither serious nor sincere about peace talks with the government, Pakistani interior minister Rehman Malik said.
The minister's remarks came after Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan offered "conditional" talks and called for the release of two former spokesmen Maulvi Said Umer and Muslim Khan, Xinhua reported.
The spokesman said the two will lead the Taliban negotiation team.
Malik said the Taliban's offer for dialogue was "suspicious" and that Ehsan has no credibility.
