'Pak troops killing incident' will not go beyond 'closing NATO supply routes for few days': Analyst
Islamabad, Nov 27 (ANI): Defence analyst Asad Munir has said that the incident of the NATO attack on Pakistani troops 'will not damage' the relationship between Washington and Islamabad, as the issue would not go beyond closing of NATO supply routes for a few days.
"Such incidents have happened in the past and they will apologise after conducting an investigation," The Express Tribune quoted Munir, as saying.
Other analysts, including Rustam Shah Mohmand, a former Ambassador to Afghanistan, said that Pakistan would protest and close the supply lines for some time, but that ultimately "things will get back to normal".
Before holding a meeting with the Defence Cabinet Committee to discuss the aftermath of the NATO attack that killed up to 28 Pakistani soldiers, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani met Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, and President Asif Ali Zardari, and condemned the attack.
"This is an attack on Pakistan's sovereignty. We will not let any harm come to Pakistan's sovereignty and solidarity," Gilani warned.
Meanwhile, the committee has decided to 'close with immediate effect NATO/ISAF logistics supply'. (ANI)
