Hundreds of containers and oil tankers have reached Karachi and arrival of others continued after reports of possibility of resumption of NATO supplies in the next few days.
Yousuf Shehwani, Chairman of All Pakistan Tankers Association, claimed that the Interior Ministry has instructed them to complete all arrangements for NATO supply.
However, despite getting a green signal for resumption of NATO supply, he expressed concerns over the security arrangements made for the tankers.
It should be mentioned that after deadly attack of Nato forces on Salala check post in last week of November last years killing 24 troops, Pakistan halted supply of NATO forces which deteriorated ties with the US but it seems now that within next few days all issues will be resolved.
More than six thousand containers , carrying supply for NATO troops, constantly move on highways between Karachi and Afghanistan using Torkham- Jalalabad Highway and Quetta-Chaman route.
The containers drivers are very happy over news of NATO supply resumption as they are hoping to get back their jobs after many months’ break.
