India's Prime Minister said yesterday that a major diplomatic effort was under way to improve ties with Pakistan.

Manmohan Singh's comments came after he and the Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani agreed to resume peace talks and work toward rebuilding trust shattered by the deadly 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks blamed on Pakistani militants. "A major effort is being made to bridge the trust deficit with Pakistan," Mr Singh said.

"I'm hopeful this process can move forward. Whether we succeed or not – that, only future events can tell."
