Tentative peace talks between India and Pakistan have stalled after the Mumbai attacks, India said Dec. 16, and can only resume if Islamabad takes more decisive action against militant groups on its soil. The talks, known as the composite dialogue, began in 2004 after the nuclear-armed neighbors almost came to the brink of war two years earlier over an attack on the Indian parliament blamed on Pakistan-based militant groups. The peace process has brought better diplomatic, trade and sporting ties but little progress has been made on major disputes such as the divided Jammu and Kashmir region. (Reuters)
