ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – In a surprising move, Russia and it’s neighboring countries struck a deal with the U.S. to allow transport of supplies to American troops in Afghanistan through their territory, the head of U.S. Central Command said Tuesday.
Most supplies for U.S. and NATO troops must first pass through northern Pakistan via the Arabian Sea port of Karachi, a dangerous route that is oftentimes closed due to attacks by Islamist militants. However, Pakistani Army officials have announced successful attempts at cracking down on terrorists after killing 60 militants in a stepped-up offensive on the Afghan border.
