Brussels: NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said there has been a decline in cooperation activities and “it’s not business as usual with Pakistan”.
“No, it’s not business as usual. We have seen a decline in cooperation activities during recent months which I strongly regret,” the EuAsiaNews quoted Rasmussen as saying.

“I think it is of mutual interest to have a close cooperation between Pakistan and NATO,” he added.
“I still hope that we will see a reopening of the transit routes in not too distant future,” he told a press conference here Monday.
