North Korea’s military is scheduled to hold the talks Thursday with the U.N. Command, the first since the sinking of a South Korean warship, after postponing the meeting from Tuesday for “administrative reasons.”

The talks are scheduled to be held at 10 a.m. at the border village of Panmunjom, according to a statement Wednesday from the U.N. Command, which monitors the Korean War armistice.

PAKISTAN

Talks with India set to resume

ISLAMABAD | The foreign ministers of nuclear-armed rivals Pakistan and India are to hold talks in Islamabad Thursday aimed at resuming a tentative peace process derailed by the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

The talks are the third high-level contact in six months and the foreign ministers’ first meeting since 10 Islamist gunmen left 166 people dead in 60 hours of carnage in India’s financial capital two years ago.

The agenda is likely to be dominated by Indian concerns about terrorism, violence in India-administered Kashmir, rivalry in Afghanistan and reported allegations that Pakistan’s intelligence agency was behind the 2008 attacks.

India’s S.M. Krishna and Pakistan’s Shah Mehmood Qureshi are expected to go into talks at 11 a.m.
