Indian and Pakistani officials said peace talks between their countries would open here on Wednesday as planned, reaffirming their determination not to allow the train bombings that killed at least 68 people on Sunday to upset the delicate negotiations. Pakistan’s foreign minister, Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri, arrived here in the capital on Tuesday for the talks, but first stopped at a hospital to visit the wounded. 

“Incidents like these that are very heart-rending and which affect both countries and both peoples can only add to the urgency of the need for cooperation,” he told reporters. 

The Samjhauta Express — one of only two trains between India and Pakistan and a train that is rich in symbolism in the context of peace talks between the two countries — was bombed yesterday in what was presumably a terrorist attack. So far, 68 people have been reported killed, and evidence of IEDs in suitcases has been found in the wreckage.
