Geo Report-No Discussion on Nato Supply-14 Dec 2011

ISLAMABAD, Aug 29: Commander International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) General John Allen is likely to meet Pakistan Army chief general Ashfaq Parvez Kayani during his visit to the country starting on Thursday.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Pakistan army media wing says on Wednesday that general Allen will meet general Kayani on August 30 and the both sides will focus on reviewing the strides made so far on recently evolved border coordination measures and standing operating procedure.

Both heads of armies have been holding a series of parleys to improve the cross border cooperation between Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nato troops.

The visit of ISAF chief takes place at a time when the Pakistan armed forces are continuously repulsing cross border attacks of militants who fled the tribal areas of Bajaur during an army offensive and now hiding inside Afghanistan.

During last two weeks, the armed forces with backing of local tribal militias had killed scores of assailants in series of ferocious and pitched battles raging on remote mountainous areas straddling between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
