Islamabad: Against the wishes of people of Pakistan and in total disregard to parliament’s recommendations, the PPP-led ruling alliance is set to reopen NATO/ISAF supplies without US apology over Salala security post attack that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.One of the 14 point revised recommendations unanimously approved by the parliament last month seeking US apology over the incident for reopening supplies.Government’s inner circles believed that Pakistan has missed the opportunity when the US shown inclination to tender apology in February, but US Administration is no more interested in doing so mainly because of timing of forthcoming elections in which President Obama is also set to seek second term in office.Another argument they give in support of government’s consideration of reopening the supplies is that the ruling alliance badly needs US financial support for making next budget.Further to this, they also insist that Pakistan would be much better placed after reassurances from the US and NATO that Salala like incident would not reoccur, and that Pakistan would secure more advantages in line with parliamentary recommendations. “ Pakistan would gain more while resetting its relations with the US and NATO”, a senior Pakistani diplomat told The Nation arguing that there would secure its interest while renegotiating new rules engagements as per the recommendations of the parliament.On the other hand, critics say empty assurances of the US and NATO for not breaching territorial sovereignty would remain a dream, as the US does not seem inclined in stopping drone attacks as demanded by the so called sovereign parliament of Pakistan.Some of them while criticizing the government’s move to reopen NATO supplies suggested that PPP-led ruling alliance should have secured more money had it approached the Indian government rather than lowering the national honour by begging the US for one billion dollars. They argued that government would have been much better placed without the US and NATO cooperation had it by stood by the recommendations of the parliament.They thought that this decision would cost the ruling alliance very heavily in the next general elections rather than helping the government. This was evident from the statements made by the opposition parties over the government’s move.
