Pakistan says Nato halt temporary

Husain HaqqaniWASHINGTON: Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States on Friday promised that his country would reopen its border crossing with Afghanistan to US-led forces once it can be confident of security.

Pakistan said Thursday that it was closing the Torkham border crossing —vital to supply US troops in Afghanistan —after Nato helicopters killed three Pakistani troops on their own side of the border.

“I think as soon as we can ensure the security of the convoys moving through the Khyber Pass, we will have them moving again,” Husain Haqqani, the Pakistani ambassador in Washington, said on CNN.

Haqqani said that Pakistan ordered the closure for security reasons due to public outrage over the killing of the troops.

“In a situation like that, if the supplies were continuing, there would have been a possibility that there may have been a security situation that we had to deal with,” Haqqani said.
