Russian news agencies are reporting that the leaders of India and Pakistan have met on the sidelines of a summit in Russia.

State-run RIA-Novosti and Interfax say Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari held a bilateral meeting Tuesday.

It is the first interaction between the two leaders since the terrorist attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai last November.

India accuses a Pakistan-based militant group of sending the teams of gunmen that rampaged through Mumbai in a three-day siege that left 166 people dead.

Pakistani officials have acknowledged the November attacks were partly plotted on their soil.
