Pakistan to sign supply deal with NATO

Islamabad, Thu, 08 Nov 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Nov. 8 (ANI): Pakistan is all set to make an agreement with NATO regarding transferring supplies to American troops in Afghanistan through Pakistani land.

According to the agreement, which is likely to be finalised at the end of this month, NATO will have the permission to use Pakistani routes for its supplies and can use them during withdrawal of forces from Afghanistan, reports The Nation.

The agreement would allow the U.S. and all NATO member countries to use Pakistani routes. However, shipments of arms and ammunition would not be allowed.

The security of supply tankers would be the responsibility of Pakistan. The routes on both sides of Afghan border have been earmarked for the purpose. It has also been proposed in the draft that Pakistani laws would apply to the convoys as long they are in Pakistani territory. However, no duty or tax would be levied on supplies.

The finalisation of the agreement would add Pakistan to the list of 49 countries, which have had similar agreements with NATO. (ANI)
