Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said the Pakistani government was ready to hold a dialogue with militants - if they surrender their weapons.

The Associated Press of Pakistan quoted Gilani as saying that "if they (militants) will challenge the writ of the government, target innocents and attack cities, public property, installations, police stations and railways, the government will take action against them".

There have been a string of terror strikes across the country since the May 2 killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad. In an audacious attack, terrorists had stormed a key naval base in Karachi May 22 and destroyed two surveillance aircraft.
