Islamabad: Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said that decision to reopen Nato supply routes was unanimously taken by civil and military leadership.
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, she said the decision was taken since the United States accepted all the demands tabled by Pakistan. However, she didn’t explain as to which demand except a “sorry” was accepted by the US.
She said that the decision was according to the guidelines of the Parliament. Khar claimed that Pakistan never entered any covert deal to reopen the routes.
She said that Pakistan re-bonded its relations not only with the US but 49 nations of Nato by resumption of supplies.
Khar said that the routes were closed over cross border attacks on Pakistan’s territory.
