Pakistan's DCC gives green signal to finalize NATO supply resumption terms
Islamabad, May 16 (ANI): Pakistan's Defence Committee of the Cabinet (DCC), has reportedly directed relevant ministries to conclude the ongoing negotiations for new terms and conditions on resumption of NATO ground supplies.
The committee, which met under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, also reiterated that only non-lethal cargo would be allowed to transit the country.
It decided that the military authorities should negotiate fresh border ground rules with NATO/ISAF to ensure that Salala-like incidents do not reoccur, The Daily Times reports.
Pakistan closed down the supply lines for the Afghan war effort following the NATO air strike in November last year that killed 24 soldiers.
According to the report, the DCC reviewed Pakistan's cooperation in the international community's security and stabilisation efforts in Afghanistan.
"The new terms and conditions should incorporate a clause, as recommended by parliament, to the effect that only non-lethal cargo would be allowed to transit through Pakistan to Afghanistan," the committee said. (ANI)
