Updates in the Samjhauta Express bombing incident

I hope you all found PM's article about the recent train bombing in India to be as insightful as I did. If you have not read the article, please read it right here. However, since that train bombing, there have been new updates to the story.
  1. Pakistan blamed India for the recent attack, saying India did not employ adequate security. (source) Meanwhile, the BJP party in India blamed Pakistan, saying the attack was an attempt to stick a "made in India" label on Pakistan's homegrown terror. (source)
  2. Pakistan has called for a joint investigation into the attack, and India has turned down the request for this, but said they will share findings with Islamabad. (source)
  3. India and Pakistan just signed a nuclear pact with each other. (source)
More information about the recent terror attack in India may be found right here, on the Times of India's regularly updated website. There is some very encouraging news out of India, namely that India has enacted sanctions against Iran. (source) This is great news, and is shows that India is moving closer and closer towards more fully aligning itself with the West.
