14 July, 2012
WASHINGTON: United States has said that activation the NATO supply routes in Pakistan will take time.
Briefing the newsmen, Director, Press Office of the State Department Patrick Ventrell said that we're pleased that Pakistan has decided to open the supply routes and that already several containers have moved across the border into Afghanistan.
We also understand that the process of activating the supply routes has only just begun and that it will take time for the backlog to be cleared' he said.
We understand the Pakistanis continue to be committed to getting things moving. We are working together to put in place a range of technical measures and instructions necessary for transit. We're confident that these procedures will be put in place and allow many more trucks to move expeditiously.
