The USA Announces First Then Pakistan Admits NATO Supply Continued Through Airspace
This is the routine of Pakistani government that claims every time the power of masses, votes and the parliament who are kept in darkness on deciding the most important issues. The "powerful mases" whom they say the base of "their democracy" is kept hungry, with out shelter, electricity gas and so on and so forth. The USA has been using Pakistani airspace for NATO supply and nobody knows except the upper class. This was the USA who told Pakistanis that we do not care for your protests, processions and morning , we are doing our job nicely with the help of your rulers. This is also wrong that only food supplies are allowed , rather every thing is permitted that was suplied through ground routes.
US State Department said that Ambassador Cameron Munter has already told that Pakistani airspace is being used for NatO supply which made clear that the route is open, however refused to comment in detail.
Replying a question during a daily press briefing, US State Department's spokesperson Victoria Nuland said that she don't have an accurate answer regarding Pakistani aerial supply routes to Afghanistan.
Islamabad publicly admitted Tuesday that it had allowed NATO to use Pakistani airspace to fly supplies into Afghanistan, despite a more than two-month blockade on the border crossings. "The permission has been given for food items," a defense ministry official quoted Defense Minister Ahmed Mukhtar as saying at a function in Islamabad. "Since the food items were perishable, we have allowed them to transport them by air to Afghanistan.
"We have told them to take the supplies out by air and don't bring more for the time being," the official quoted him as saying.
US ambassador to Islamabad, Cameron Munter, last week confirmed that NATO had continued to fly supplies into Afghanistan despite Pakistan's closure of the border to NATO trucks and oil tankers on November 26.
Relations between Pakistan and the United States sunk to an all-time low after air strikes killed 24 Pakistani soldiers along the Afghan border in an incident that the United States blamed on mistakes made by both sides.
