RAWALPINDI - Corps Commanders will meet here on Wednesday (today).

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani is expected to take the corps commanders into confidence over a possible resumption of supplies to Nato troops in Afghanistan, sources were quoted as saying.

Islamabad shut its Afghan border to Nato supplies after US airstrikes killed 24 soldiers in November. But Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said on Monday that it was time to ‘move on’, conceding a key demand from the West in time for Pakistan to attend the Nato summit in Chicago on Sunday and Monday. Pakistan has called for an end to US drone strikes targeting Taliban and al Qaeda militants on its soil, and a formal apology for the November killings.

“It was important to make a point, Pakistan has made a point and we now need to move on and go into a positive zone and try to conduct our relations,” Khar told a news conference. “We are trying to put this relationship, you know, in a positive zone and I am quite sure that we will be successful in doing so,” she said.
