Islamabad, Dec 13 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has said although the US does want to apologise for its attack on the Salala check post, that will not be of much value because it cannot bring martyred soldiers back to life.
Gilani said that although he was urged by world leaders to send a Pakistani delegate to the Bonn Conference, he decided not to do so after putting national interest ahead of other priorities.
Earlier, the Amir of the Jamat-e-Islami Pakistan Syed Munawar Hassan had said that Washington's mere seeking of forgiveness by the US would not be enough to condone the murder of 24 military officials and troops.
Munawar Hassan also said a permanent suspension of NATO supplies was in line with decisions and resolutions passed unanimously by the All Parties Conference and Parliament.
"Some segments are pushing the idea that the NATO supply line should be restored if the US extends an apology," he added. (ANI)
