India's new Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged his Pakistani counterpart to crack down on militants and speed up the trial of the 2008 Mumbai attacks suspects.

Modi held bilateral talks with Nawaz Sharif on his first day in office.

The Pakistani leader said they should put the "legacy of mistrust" behind them and work for peace and stability.

Sharif attended Modi's swearing-in yesterday, amid hopes of a thaw in relations between the rivals who have fought three wars since independence.

Sharif described it as "a great moment and a great opportunity" and said "this could help in turning a new page in our relations".
