Rivals of the subcontinent India and Pakistan have decided to return to discussions on a peace agreement. This comes as the two countries have had slightly improved relations after the lows after the Mumbai massacre in 2008.
“They have agreed to resume dialogue on all issues following the spirit of the Thimpu meeting between the two prime ministers,” a joint statement said, referring to weekend talks in the Bhutanese capital.
BBC correspondents say no-one is expecting swift progress on issues at the heart of the dispute.
Of course, any solution is down the road. But both countries are very concerned about what will happen to Afghanistan.
