India and Pakistan have agreed to press on with a year-old peace process that seemed bogged down in recent weeks over their bitter dispute in Kashmir.
The announcement came after talks in New Delhi Tuesday between Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz and Indian Foreign Minister Natwar Singh.
India's foreign ministry spokesman (Navtej Sarna) told reporters that both sides felt the dialogue should continue to move forward.
Mr. Aziz is in New Delhi as the outgoing chairman of a regional grouping (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, or SAARC), but news reports say the faltering peace process and discord over Kashmir are likely to dominate his discussions.
On Monday, Mr. Aziz warned not to expect a breakthrough from the talks. He said India's reduction in troops in Kashmir has helped reduce tensions but a permanent solution is likely some time off.
