US sees no long-term impact of KP situation

06 December, 2013

WASHINGTON: The State Department Wednesday said the US favours using Pakistani overland routes for retrograde movement of equipment out of Afghanistan and voiced hope that the current situation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, with regard to Torkham route, would not have a long-term impact.

"We favour shipping cargo via Pakistan because of the cost. And hopefully I don't anticipate that there will be any long-term impact to our retrograde movement because of the current situation," Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf said at the daily briefing.

She was responding to a question about the viability of Pakistani ground lines for communication (GLOCs) for US shipment of equipment as the country is currently moving cargo out of landlocked Afghanistan in view of 2014 military drawdown, temporarily suspended shipments through the Torkham Pass.
