Senior officials from Pakistan and India will hold talks later this month, the first formal dialogue between the nuclear-armed rivals since the deadly Mumbai siege of 2008.

Pakistan's government said on Friday that its foreign secretary would meet his Indian counterpart in New Delhi on Feb. 25.

The meeting marks a significant thawing of relations between the two countries, which have long been marred by disputes over Kashmir and plummeted after the Mumbai attack, which India blamed on Pakistan-based militants.

The United States has been pressuring both sides to resume talks, hoping that reduced tensions between the two sides will help its strategy against militants in Afghanistan and in Pakistan's tribal belt.
