Pakistan has promised India it will do everything in its power to bring the Mumbai terror attackers to justice, a key demand by New Delhi to improve relations. The prime ministers of the two countries also agreed on Thursday that action on terrorism should not be linked to their peace talks, a joint statement said.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yusuf Gilani met on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Summit in Sharm el-Sheikh.

The much anticipated meeting came after a seven-month freeze in the political dialogue between the two historic adversaries after a days-long assault by gunmen from Pakistan left 166 people dead in India's financial capital of Mumbai.
