US asked to vacate "Shamsi airbase within 15 days"
Islamabad, Nov 27 (ANI): Pakistan has reportedly asked the United States to vacate the Shamsi airbase within 15 days.
"The DCC decided to close, with immediate effect, the Nato/Isaf logistics supply lines. It also decided to ask the US to vacate the Shamsi airbase within 15 days," The Dawn quoted a statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office after a meeting of the Defence Committee of the Cabinet (DCC), as saying.
"The DCC decided that the government will revisit and undertake a complete review of all programmes, activities and cooperative arrangements with US/Nato/Isaf, including diplomatic, political, military and intelligence," it added.
It was originally proposed to unilaterally terminate the NATO supply route, but ultimately the DCC settled for keeping it indefinitely closed even as it had been squelched soon after the incident and the decision by the country's top civilian and military leadership appeared as a formal closure announcement, the paper said.
Up to 28 soldiers were killed in the attack. (ANI)
