Border between Pakistan and Afghanistan remains closed

U.S. apology for attack on Pakistani soldiers has not yet prompted a reopening


Pakistan has not yet decided when it will reopen a key border crossing used by NATO to ship supplies to Afghanistan. Though a U.S. apology for a helicopter attack that killed two Pakistani soldiers was expected to prompt the reopening, a Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesman said authorities were still evaluating the situation and would make a decision “in due course.” Immediately following the attack, in which American helicopters mistook Pakistani soldiers for insurgents, Pakistan closed the Torkham border crossing along the famed Khyber Pass. This has left NATO supply convoys, and hundreds of trucks stranded alongside the country’s highways or stuck in traffic on the way to the one route into Afghanistan that has remained open.

  1. I am India's expert in strategic defence and the father of India's strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program. The U.S. invasion of Afghanistan means the coast-to-coast destruction of the U.S. by India; see my blog titled 'Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.' which can be found by a Yahoo search with the title.
    Russia and the U.S. are allies.

  2. Maybe the US should reconsider the BILLIONS spent keeping Pakistan's military afloat in a failed state eh?

  3. Are they really Pakistan militaries, or "Pakistan militaries" aiding the Taliban?
