India, Pakistan FMs to Meet Monday in New Delhi

India's new Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee and his Pakistani counterpart, Khursheed Kasuri, will meet on Monday in New Delhi to review the stalled peace process between the two nuclear rivals.

Mukherjee told reporters Friday that Kasuri will be in India over the weekend on a private visit and that the meeting had been fixed for Monday.

India suspended the almost three-year-old peace process following a July terrorist attack on Mumbai's train network that killed nearly 200 people and wounded 800 others.

New Delhi accused Pakistan's spy agency of involvement in the attack, but Islamabad denied any involvement and demanded evidence.

Last week, the two sides agreed to set up a three-member panel to share information about counter-terrorism activities and a pact to reduce risks of nuclear accidents.
