India, Pakistan agree to resume peace talks
NEW DELHI | India and Pakistan announced Thursday the resumption of peace talks suspended more than two years ago after Islamist gunmen killed 166 people in Mumbai.
In simultaneous statements issued in New Delhi and Islamabad, the nuclear-armed neighbors and longtime rivals said they had “agreed to resume dialogue on all issues.”
They also announced that Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi would visit India by July to “review progress” in the dialogue process.
Suicide bomber kills 31 soldiers
PESHAWAR | A suicide bomber linked to the Pakistani Taliban attacked soldiers during morning exercises at an army training camp in the northwest Thursday, killing 31 troops and wounding 42 others.
There were conflicting accounts about the identity of the bomber. The army and police said he was a teenager in a school uniform, but the Pakistani Taliban claimed he was a soldier at the camp in Mardan town who volunteered for the attack.
The bombing showed that despite years of army operations against their hide-outs along Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan, Taliban and al Qaeda-linked fighters retain the ability to strike back. It was one of the worst attacks on security forces in recent months.
Official says Japan ‘unwavering’ on islands

Seiji Maehara, who is due to visit Moscow on Friday, said Russia’s occupation of the islands is illegal and shrugged off President Dmitry Medvedev’s order the previous day to deploy extra weaponry there.
