India Pakistan relations improve despite differences


A Pakistani head of state sets foot in India for the first time in seven years.

President Asif Ali Zardari arrived on Sunday, strengthening the perception that relations between the two nuclear-armed foes have improved over the past year despite ongoing differences.

Indian prime minisiter Manmohan Singh welcomed the president to his residence and afterwards he told reporters that relations between India and Pakistan should become normal.

But there are still some sticking points. One is the ten million dollar reward being offered by the US for the capture of the Pakistani islamist Hafiz Saeed. He is blamed for the 2008 attacks in Mumbai that left 166 people dead..

India is angry that Pakistan has not arrested Saeed despite having handed over what it says is evidence against him.
