Pakistan and India agreed Saturday to restart peace talks suspended since train bombings killed more than 200 people in Mumbai in June as part of a wave of attacks India blames on Pakistan-based militants. Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh agreed to the talks after meeting at exclusive government protocol houses on Havana's outskirts during the Nonaligned Movement summit. Musharraf had expressed optimism Friday that the meeting could lead to a cease-fire along their common border in the Himalayan mountains. "A historic opportunity like this must be seized by the leadership of the two countries to bring to a close the chapter and tension in our region," Musharraf said Friday in his speech to the Nonaligned Movement.
