ISLAMABAD, May 13: A highly powered tripartite commission of military authorities of Pakistan, Afghanistan and ISAF, on Sunday held talks on border control measures to avoid recurrence of any untoward incident on both sides of Pak-Afghan border.
Pakistan Army contingent was led by Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani. General John Allen, Commander ISAF and General Sher Muhammad Karimi, Chief of General Staff Afghan National Army, says a military statement.
The top brass from the militaries met after a pause of almost six months after the incident of November 26 aerial attack on Salala checkpost killing 24 Pakistani soldiers.
The government of Pakistan promptly retaliated by closing all land routes for NATO supply.
The military statement says that “The Commission provides a forum to raise and process contentious issues and facilitate settlement.”
Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has also summoned back to back high level meetings of political and military leadership during last week of May to discuss restoration of NATO supply lines amid growing political opponents’ anger over such move.
