Pakistan, India say they'll keep pushing for peace

ISLAMABAD (AP) - India's foreign secretary says her country remains concerned about the threat of terrorism, but is committed to pushing forward on peace talks with Pakistan.
Nirupama Rao made the comments Friday after two days of meetings in Islamabad between delegations from the nuclear-armed archrivals.
The meetings were the first formal talks between the neighboring nations on the disputed region of Kashmir since the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
The siege of Mumbai killed 166 people and has been blamed on Pakistani militants belonging to the banned group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Pakistan has denied allegations its spy agencies played a role.
Pakistani Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir says the two sides hope to find common ground in the weeks ahead.
