ULFA talks commence

It was reported last week that the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) was prepared to commence peace talks and things have moved quickly with a preliminary round of talks with Assamese and Indian government representatives held this week.

In an editorial today, The Hindu ascribes these developments to gains by India's security forces and cooperation from Bhutan and Bangladesh.  The next round of talks will be held in May.
