Pakistan to re-open NATO routes to Afghanistan-official

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Pakistan expects to re-open supply routes to NATO forces in Afghanistan, halted after a NATO cross-border air attack killed 24 Pakistani soldiers in November, but will impose tariffs, a senior security official told Reuters on Thursday.

The official said the fees were designed to both express continued anger over the Nov. 26 incident, and raise more funds for the state to fight homegrown Taliban militants. No date was given for reopening the supply routes.
