KARACHI, Pakistan, April 18 (UPI) -- Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Saturday the government would be willing to talk to rebels who lay down arms.

Dawn, Pakistan's English-language newspaper, reported the prime minister also told reporters in Karachi that the terrorist attacks last year in Mumbai have strained Pakistan's relations with India.
