India, Pakistan Pledge to Jointly Combat Terrorism
Longtime foes India and Pakistan on Saturday agreed to continue efforts to cooperatively combat terrorism, the Xinhua News Agency reported.
Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar and her Indian equivalent, S.M. Krishna, in a collaborative statement "reaffirmed the strong commitment" of New Delhi and Islamabad "to fight terrorism in an effective and comprehensive manner."
Pakistani-origin extremist assaults on India have brought relations between the two nuclear-armed states to the breaking point on multiple prior occasions. The November 2008 terrorist assault on Mumbai caused India to pull out of bilateral peace talks with Pakistan. The composite dialogue, which aims to resolve disputes on nuclear arms, terrorism, Kashmir, and disputed natural resources, was not reopened until last year.
"With determination and political will Pakistan and India can address the issues of divergence," Khar said.
Specialists from the two nations are due to meet in December in New Delhi for discussions on atomic and non-nuclear trust-enforcing actions.
