Pakistan refuses to open Afghan route

The US-led forces have launched a record number of unauthorized airstrikes in Pakistan this year.
Pakistan says it will not reopen a key supply route for foreign troops in Afghanistan until public anger over recent attacks by the US-led forces subsides.

“Unless the reaction cools down and we make sure that the supply line is secured, we cannot reopen it,” Reuters quoted Pakistan Foreign Ministry spokesman Abdul Basit as saying on Sunday.

In retaliation to the surge in the US cross-border attacks, Pakistan has closed its borders with Afghanistan to NATO supply trucks.

On Saturday, two separate non-UN-sanctioned US drone attacks killed 25 people in Pakistan’s North Waziristan tribal region along the Afghan border.

A NATO helicopter on Thursday claimed the lives of three Pakistani soldiers in the northwestern Kurram region.

The recent Pakistani move against the US-led forces hasn’t stopped the United States military from carrying out non-UN-sanctioned attacks inside Pakistani territory.

The US military has launched record numbers of such attacks this year.
