ISLAMABAD: US Ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter has hinted that Nato supplies might have resumed through Pakistani airspace.

He was speaking to reporters at the Pakistan National Council of Arts.

When asked if it were true that despite the blockade of road routes for Nato supplies for forces stationed in Afghanistan, Pakistan’s airspace was being used to provide for them, Munter said, “you are right”.

The supply routes were blocked following outrage in Pakistan after the November 26 Salala checkpoint attack, in which 24 Pakistani soldiers were killed in Nato bombing. The US was also made to vacate Shamsi Airbase, which was being used for drone strikes in Afghanistan and allegedly for those carried out in Pakistan.
