Pakistan agrees to reopen NATO supply route
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - The decision was made during a Wednesday meeting of civilian and military leadership of the country in Islamabad, attended by President Asif Ali Zaradri, Amy Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Director General of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant-General Ahmed Shuja Pasha and Premier Yousuf Raza Gilani along with his senior ministers.
The meeting was convened to discuss channels to normalize the relations with US-led forces in Afghanistan and restore NATO supplies route through Pakistani territories.
The rare meeting of the country’s top civilian and military leadership was held just days ahead of the joint session of the parliament that will mainly focus on Pakistan’s future relationship with the US and NATO.
In November 2011, Islamabad blocked the supply line for the US-led foreign forces in Afghanistan in reaction to the killing of 26 Pakistani soldiers by the US-led forces near the Afghan border.
