ISLAMABAD: Top Pakistani military and civil leadership huddled in Islamabad on Friday to contemplate security matters, including reopening supply routes for international forces in Afghanistan after the United States appeared to be softening a hardened stance on offering an apology for last year’s attacks on border posts.
According to details, President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, army chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) head Lt Gen Zaheerul Islam.
Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, who had attended a summit in Kabul on Thursday, too participated in the meeting at the Presidency.
There was little by way of an official statement released of the meeting. However, insider’s told The Express Tribune that the meeting discussed thoroughly different aspects of Pakistan-US relations with focus on reopening of NATO supplies.
President Zardari briefed the gathering about his recent trip to China, where he had participated in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
According to Express News, some sources said that a decision on reopening the routes will be taken soon.
