The Pakistani government is in peace talks with the Taliban, but the people of the Swat Valley remain sceptical.
The Pakistani Taliban's negotiating team is finalising the venue to hold the next round of talks with the government, and committee leader, Sami ul Haq, says dialogue is the only way to ensure long term peace.
Yet residents of the Swat Valley are wary of any progress with the same Taliban that controlled the area from 2007 until they were driven out in a military operation in 2009.
