Pakistan Taliban threatens to attack lawmakers if NATO supply routes to Afghanistan reopen

Islamabad, Sun, 25 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 25 (ANI): The Pakistan Taliban has threatened to attack lawmakers if they decide to re-open NATO supply routes to Afghanistan.

"If the parliament decides to restore NATO supplies, we will attack parliamentarians and their overlords," The Dawn quoted Ehsanullah Ehsan, spokesman for the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), as saying.

Pakistan's parliament is reviewing recommendations for a new direction in ties with Washington, including a possible re-opening of supply routes for NATO forces in Afghanistan, which were suspended last November after a cross-border skirmish with NATO forces killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said the NATO supplies had been blocked without any pressure and consensus will be developed for resumption.

He confirmed his scheduled meeting with US President Barack Obama, and said that discussions on the situation in Afghanistan would take place. (ANI)
