The Pakistani Parliament conditioned the normalization of links with United States to the respect of its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and the inclution of an immediate end of all attacks with drone planes. The Legislative approved for unanimity 14 recommendations of the Commission of National Security that will serve as guidelines for the relations with Washington, in its worst moment since November 26 when airships of the NATO killed 24 soldiers on the border with Afghanistan.
One of the conditions will be precisely that the United States presents public and formal apology for the attack, and not to demand to take the perpetrators to justice.
Islamabad, also, demanded the withdrawal from Pakistan all security and intelligence personnel and to abstain from carring out illegal incursions in its national territory on allegations that they are chasing members of the Talibán rebel forces.
Pakistan, on the other hand, will re-open the routes of supply for the allied forces stationed in Afghanistan that were closed since November 26, although charging higher taxes for security and use of ports, highways and other services that United States need.
Although the guidelines approved by Parliament must still be sanctioned by the government, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said in a national speech that the Executive will do everything possible for applying them in letter and spirit.
Diplomatic circles said that when everything to this regard is decided, Pakistani Chancellor will travel to the United States to exhibit the new terms of the bilateral relations.
