Pakistani cabinet approves MoU with US on Afghan cargo


09:43, July 26, 2012

ISLAMABAD, July 25 (Xinhua)-- Pakistani Cabinet on Wednesday approved the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with United States for the transit of US Cargo to and from Afghanistan through the territory of Pakistan, officials said.

Pakistan reopened land routes for NATO forces in neighbouring Afghanistan on July 3 after U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, apologized over the killing of 24 Pakistani soldiers in last November airstrike.

Pakistan had been demanding U.S. apology for months but the U.S. had earlier refused to apologize and American officials were saying that only 'regret' was enough.

But Pakistan refused to unblock the supply line for nearly seven months, Washington agreed to tender apology.

Pakistan and the Unites states have held series of talks to finalize a formal agreement on transit of supplies to foreign forces in Afghanistan.

When Pakistan announced reopening of NATO supply line, officials had argued that the land routes will also be available for troops and heavy machinery withdrawal from Afghanistan.
