Protesting Pak withdrawing troops meant to coordinate military activity across Afghan border: US

Islamabad, Dec 6 (ANI): Pakistan is pulling troops out of at least two of the three centres meant to coordinate military activity across its border with Afghanistan, apparently in protest against the recent NATO attack, US military officials have said.

The move will hamper US efforts to cooperate with Pakistani forces, increasing the risk that something could go wrong again, The Dawn quoted officials, as saying.

The recent NATO attack has soured the relationship between both countries to such a degree that Islamabad refused to attend the Bonn Conference on the future of Afghanistan.

Reports suggest that the Pakistan Foreign Office has also summoned its envoys from several world capitals in protest against the NATO attacks.

Envoys posted in Europe, Afghanistan, India and the US, among others, have been asked to give their recommendations for a strategy to counter possible NATO attacks in the future. (ANI)
