Default Pakistan's blockade of NATO supply lines into Afghanistan enters third week - 12-10-2011, 09:14 AM

Islamabad, Dec 10 (ANI): Pakistan's blockade of the vital US supply line into Afghanistan entered a third week on Saturday, the longest closure of the ten year old war, showing no sign of border reopening as of now.

Pakistan's fragile alliance with the United States stooped down to new lows after the NATO attack in Pakistan's tribal areas killed 24 of the country's troops.

Officials in the northwest, where the main Torkham crossing into Afghanistan is situated, said there were no plans of border reopening right now.

"There is strong public resentment. People are angry about this incident and we cannot take a decision in haste," The Dawn quoted a senior security official, as saying.

"Pakistan will reopen the border when public anger cools down and the route is protected," he added.

Amid speculations that the alliance might break down over the strikes, Pakistani officials have given no clue about the reopening the crossing.

"People are still protesting. How can we take this decision in such an atmosphere?" a security official in the northwestern part of the country said.

On Thursday, around 800 people poured onto the streets in Islamabad, expressing anger against the US and NATO and demanded the government to end its ties with Washington in the war against the Taliban.

"NATO will have to apologise. They will have to provide solid security for the future," the official added. (ANI)
