Pakistan to re-open NATO routes to Afghanistan-official

The route to NATO forces in Afghanistan is expected to be opened

Reuters , Thursday 19 Jan 2012

Pakistan expects to re-open supply routes to NATO forces in Afghanistan, halted after a NATO cross-border air attack killed 24 Pakistani soldiers in November, but will impose tariffs, a senior security official told Reuters on Thursday.

The official said the fees were designed to both express continued anger over the Nov. 26 incident, and raise more funds for the state to fight homegrown Taliban militants. No date was given for reopening the supply routes.
