Pakistani MPs Oppose NATO Arms Transportation via Its Territory
Pyongyang, April 2 (KCNA) -- The Pakistani parliament Friday formally opened the debate on whether or not to reopen the supply line for the U.S.-led NATO troops in Afghanistan and the majority of lawmakers urged the government not to allow transportation of arms and ammunition to foreign forces.

All parliamentarians who took part in the debate demanded the United States to stop drone attacks and respect Pakistan's sovereignty.

Mushahid Hussain Sayyed, a senator from the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-Q) party taking part in the debate, criticized what he called the U.S "double standard" regarding establishment of peace in Afghanistan while bombing Pakistan's territory and preparing itself to fight with Iran.
