UK mediated deal between US-Pak over NATO supply resumption
Islamabad, May 20 (ANI): Britain had mediated the deal between Pakistan and the United States to reopen NATO supply lines to Afghanistan, according to a report.
A top British lawmakers reportedly revealed that Pakistani Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has given a positive signal to his British counterpart David Cameron for the resumption of NATO supply lines.
According to The Daily Times, this development was not disclosed in a joint statement issued by the 10 Downing Street after the one-to-one meeting between the two leaders last week, as it could have triggered a strong reaction in Pakistan.
Britain did not want to embarrass President Asif Ali Zardari and Gilani before a NATO Summit in Chicago, the report said.
According to the paper, Pakistan's High Commissioner to Britain Wajid Shamsul Hassan, however, said he did not know anything about the one-to-one meeting.
He said the resumption of NATO supplies would be decided by parliament and not by Gilani on his own.
President Asif Ali Zardari accepted the invitation to attend Chicago Summit, which is a good, sign, he asserted. (ANI)
