Washington, Thu, 29 Dec 2011 ANI

Washington, Dec 29(ANI): The US has reportedly decided to recall cargo that has been stuck in Pakistan since the latter sealed its NATO supply line on its border with Afghanistan following the deadly November 26 airstrike.

 

The US has directed to shift the sensitive cargo meant for its troops in Afghanistan to ports or to nearest container holding yards from where they can be exported out of Pakistan.

 

Though the trucks belong to Pakistani logistic companies, its cargo is handled by the US, The Express Tribune reports.

 

Ocean Cargo Clearance Authority chief for South West Asia (OCCA SWA) Anita Rice has also directed the US Consulate in Karachi to secure relevant documents from the custom department for the export of US cargo.

 

The US had earlier claimed that less 50 percent of all cargo meant for nearly 140,000 US troops in Afghanistan pass through Pakistan. (ANI)
