Peshawar, Aug. 5: Pakistan has allowed 14 containers carrying NATO troop supplies to cross into Afghanistan from its northwestern border at Torkham, officials have said.
Pakistan had temporarily stopped NATO supplies into Afghanistan over security concerns on July 24 after militants attacked a convoy of NATO trucks, killing a driver, in the town of Jamrud, reports The Express Tribune.
“NATO supplies have resumed and we sent 14 containers for international troops in Afghanistan,” a local administration official confirmed.
A local intelligence official also confirmed the resumption of supplies and the departure of 14 NATO containers to Afghanistan.
A senior local customs official, Ubaidullah Khan, however, put the figure of containers, which left for Afghanistan, at seven, adding that they were carrying food and clothes. (ANI)
