Pakistan opposition to resist NATO supply restoration to Afghanistan

Pakistani opposition parties have vowed to block every move by the government to restore NATO supplies to Afghanistan.

Leader of the opposition in the National Assembly Nisar Ali Khan has said the alliance will protect the country's interest at all costs. He was speaking at a meeting of the opposition leaders here on Saturday, the Online news agency reported.


Their recommendations were expected to be presented at another meeting on Sunday to be chaired by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif.

Meanwhile, Information and Broadcasting Minister Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that only parliament has the right to decide on restoration of NATO supplies.

She said the parliament's security committee has submitted its recommendations and the government will discuss the matter with the US after the parliament takes a decision.

Islamabad had blocked NATO supplies through its territory after 28 Pakistani soldiers died in November last year in an air raid by coalition forces on two border check posts.
