BRUSSELS: NATO Secretary General Andres Fogh Rasmussen said Monday that there was no agreement with Pakistan to restore the supply route.
Rasmussen hoped that Pakistan would soon restore the NATO supply route.
“Talks are ongoing with Pakistan regarding the resumption of the route.”
NATO has struck a deal with Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan to remove equipment through their territories as it winds down the Afghan operation, NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Monday.
"We reached agreement on reverse transit from Afghanistan with three Central Asian partners: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan," Rasmussen said at a news conference.
"These agreements will give us a range of new options and the robust and flexible transport network we need," he added, without offering more detail on the accords.
Transit routes for the withdrawal are proving a major headache for the US-led ISAF operation in Afghanistan, with massive ammounts of materiel dispatched in the decade-long war to be pulled out by the end-2014 deadline from a country ringed by high mountain passes.
The Brussels-headquartered alliance is also discussing with Russia the possibility of using Vostochny airport near Ulyanovsk, 900 kilometres (560 miles) east of Moscow, as a transit centre for non-lethal equipment from Afghanistan.
Washington meanwhile continues to press Pakistan to reopen routes blocked six months ago in retaliation for the deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers killed by mistake by US strikes on a border post.
