Resume NATO supplies, Karzai tells Pakistan - 02-17-2012, 11:07 AM
Islamabad, Feb 17: Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai Friday asked Pakistan to resume NATO supplies that were suspended after airstrikes last year left two dozen soldiers dead, a media report said.
Karzai urged Pakistan to resume NATO supplies and suggested that it charge higher levy as it will benefit both Pakistan and Afghanistan, Geo News reported from his breakfast meeting with senior journalists here.
Karzai is in Islamabad for a one-day trilateral summit between Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan.
The airstrikes Nov 26 last year on two Pakistani Army checkposts in Mohmand Agency in the northwest region killed two dozen soldiers, sparking outrage in Pakistan.
Islamabad promptly barred the passage of NATO supplies through the country and decided to boycott an international conference focussed on the future course of action in Afghanistan. It also told the US to vacate the key Shamsi airbase in Balochistan that was used to launch drone strikes.
To a query on the US-Taliban talks, the Afghan leader said that they were aware of US-Taliban contacts but would decide where to hold Afghan-Taliban talks.
The Taliban can open office in Qatar but Kabul will hold talks in Turkey or Saudi Arabia with them, he said.
On Indian influence in Afghanistan, Karzai said Pakistan does not have to worry as Pakistan and India are already engaged in trade agreements.
Indian Commerce Minister Anand Sharma, who is accompanied by business leaders of more than 100 Indian companies, has wrapped up a four-day trip to Pakistan that began Monday.

This guy is seriously pathetic LOL
He knows this war is over along with his disgraceful 'rule' where he supported war on the whole nation
He is an insult to Shah Shuja.
I really hope once his loser assssss runs out of Afghanistan ( believe me, this failed US war is coming to an end whether u like that or not) , I hope his era can be forgotten.
I mean he is plain and simply an embarrassment and insult to Afghanistan.
Heck, you don't even hear Mohaqiq asking napakis to restore 'NATO supply's
Karzai and ANPIte loser red hats LOVE Pakistan because without napaki support, the US war and the Karzai/Spanta (supported by ANP false nationalists) regime is impossible.

Ghundal can you stop whining about ANP and red hats?
These red hats have changed the name of Pakhtunkhwa from NWFP and they have now succeeded in making pashto compulsary in schools which wasn't the case before. There is alot wrong with them. No one is arguing that but there is alot wrong with religioius parties as well. None of them are perfect. Religious parties love pakistan more than ANP or any other so called nationalist parties.
|karzai, nato, pakistan, resume, supplies, tells|
