ISLAMABAD: In another effort aimed at improving bilateral ties, Pakistan and US have agreed on the formation of a Central Coordination Authority (CCA) for monitoring and securing the resumption of NATO supplies and their routes, Express News reported on Friday.

The two allies reached a consensus on the issue in Islamabad and it was decided that the defence secretary will be the chairman of the CCA.

A “negative list” of banned Nato supply items will also be compiled with a combined effort of both the countries.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), Interior Ministry, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), National Logistics Cell (NLC) and other concerned institutions will be part of the CCA.

According to documents obtained by Express News, these decisions were taken in a high-level meeting that took place a few days ago.
