Pakistan Will Reopen NATO Supply Line To Afghanistan
NPR reported Clinton released a statement regarding the deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers in the attack. "I offered our sincere condolences to the families," she said. "Foreign Minister Kahr and I acknowledged the mistakes that resulted in the loss of Pakistani military lives."
Little is known about the specifics of what led up to the attack, though the U.S. has in the past attributed the deaths to "poor coordination." That wasn't much consolation to the Pakistani government.
Tuesday's development is to some degree the culmination of work begun at a NATO summit in May, during which President Obama and Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari were unable to come to an agreement on reopening the line.
According to Pakistani newspaper Dawn, a statement issued by Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf's office told officials, "The continued closure of supply lines not only impinge(s) on our relationship with the U.S., but also on our relations with the 49 other member states of NATO/ISAF."
