Pak political, military leaders in huddle to break NATO supply routes, ties with US impasse
Islamabad, June 16 (ANI): Pakistan's political and military leaders have reportedly met to discuss the issues of regional security, relations with the United States, and the reopening of NATO supply lines into Afghanistan.
The meeting was jointly presided over by President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar.
According to The Dawn, Zardari has also called a meeting of coalition partners on Saturday to exchange views with them on proposals to normalise Pakistan-US relations and the issue of reopening of NATO supply lines.
Meanwhile, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that officers of the Pakistan Army and NATO met in an area on the Pakistan-Afghan border on Friday.
Sources said NATO had given assurance to the government that roads from Karachi to Torkham damaged by the movement of NATO trucks would be repaired and rebuilt.
Pakistan closed the supply routes after NATO's air strikes on the Salala checkpost, which killed 24 troops in November 2011. (ANI)
