FO Rejects Reports Of Agreement Regarding Use Of Pakistan's Airspace By US
Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar says that there is no such understanding in place between Pakistan and the United States.
ISLAMABAD: (UrduPoint/UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News-2021) Foreign Office has rejected reports of an agreement regarding the use of Pakistan's airspace by the US to conduct military and intelligence operations in Afghanistan.
The reports had claimed earlier that the US was near to a formalised agreement with Pakistan that allows it to use Pakistan’s airspace to launch military and intelligence operations against Afghanistan, said a report by CNN Saturday.
The report, citing three sources familiar with the details of a classified briefing held by US President Joe Biden with members of Congress, said Pakistan had expressed the desire to sign an MoU with the US government over the matter.
However, nothing is final yet as talks between the two countries are still going on and the terms of the agreement can change, the reports added.
