NATO supply through Pakistan permanently stopped: Minister

Islamabad: A majority of Pakistani parliamentarians Friday urged the government not to allow transportation of arms and ammunition to foreign forces in Afghanistan, Xinhua reported.

Participating in a debate over whether or not to reopen the supply lines for the US-led NATO troops in Afghanistan, the parliamentarians demanded that the US stop drone attacks and respect Pakistan's sovereignty.

The US has so far rejected Pakistani appeals to halt drone strikes and even fired missiles into North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's tribal region along the Afghan border, Friday and killed at least four people.

The parliamentarians were unanimous in calling on the Pakistan government to adopt an independent foreign policy, resist foreign pressure on issues of national interests and cement relations with all neighbours.

The opposition members in parliament also called for a mechanism to search all NATO trucks to check what the vehicles are carrying for NATO forces via Pakistan.

Pakistan closed the supply line in November 2011 after the US fighter jets raided two of its border posts and killed 24 soldiers.

The government had called for a parliamentary review of relationship with the US and also to decide on the NATO supply line.
