No: 175, 04 July 2012, Press Release Regarding the Ending of the Tensions Between Pakistan and the United States

We welcome the ending of the tensions between Pakistan and the United States that had ensued following the aerial attack of last November which resulted in 24 Pakistani soldiers becoming martyrs and the reopening of the ISAF logistics line of communication through Pakistan following the apology expressed yesterday by the United States.

This development has once again demonstrated the importance attached and the critical role played by friendly and brotherly Pakistan regarding regional security and stability, which itself is also fighting terrorism and making great sacrifices as a country that is of crucial importance for stability and peace in South Asia.
