Pakistan: Army talks with Nato over border

The Pakistani army held a meeting with Nato and Afghan forces yesterday to improve co-ordination along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

The meeting in Torkham seems to be a sign of thawing relations after American air strikes accidentally killed 24 Pakistani soldiers at two Afghan border posts on 26 November.

Pakistan retaliated by closing its border to supplies meant for Nato troops in Afghanistan and by expelling the US from a base used for drones.

Both sides have said better co-ordination is needed.
