Pakistani officials say a roadside bomb blast has killed a government administrator and six tribal police officers in a tribal area on the border with Afghanistan.

Bajaur is one of the seven tribal agencies that makes up Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas along its volatile border with Afghanistan.

He said a four-country group including Pakistan, China, the USA and Afghanistan could be expanded to include other countries with influence over the Taliban.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif has said that he would ask the United States President Donald Trump administration to shun its "militaristic approach" in resolving the Afghanistan issue and that the "talks with the Taliban will bring peace to the war-torn country".

Ali, along with Levies personnel, was patrolling in Garigal area when his vehicle was targeted with a remote-controlled explosive device, killing him and four Levies personnel on the spot.

Bajaur Agency has seen intense fighting between militants and security forces in the past.

Pakistan army claims to have killed over 5,000 suspected militants in ongoing military operations since 2014, whereas more than 700 troops have also lost their lives in clashes, and landmine blasts during this period. Pakistani troops have for over a decade been battling militants in the region to curb insurgencies by the Takfiri terrorist groups of Taliban and al-Qaeda.
