India, Pakistan agree to resume peace talks

NEW DELHI — The governments of India and Pakistan said Thursday that they have agreed to resume wide-ranging peace talks that were frozen after the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
The decision came after a year of discussions by top officials from the nuclear-armed rivals about how to rebuild trust between the neighbors.
The two governments announced they would restart the talks in a joint statement issued simultaneously in New Delhi and Islamabad.
The statement said the talks would focus on counterterrorism, humanitarian issues, peace and security, the fate of Kashmir — a region claimed by both countries — and other border issues.
