KUALA LUMPUR: India and the 10-member Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) have resumed free-trade talks, Malaysian trade minister today said.

"Now today we have agreed to resume the negotiations as soon as possible, with Malaysia leading the way, and we hope that it can be completed expeditiously," Rafidah Aziz told a joint news conference with Indian Commerce Minister Kamal Nath.

The talks were suspended after ASEAN said India had wanted too many goods to be excluded from the agreement.
