NATO supply trucks and oil tankers pass through Pakistani and officials say that the lorries have badly damaged Pakistan roads. Officials say that 70 percent supplies are transported via Pakistan to some 150,000 U.S-led foreign troops in Afghanistan. The Pakistani Senate Standing Committee on Ports and Shipping on Saturday expressed its displeasure over the condition of roads that are being damaged by the containers of NATO trucks and demanded 50 billion rupees for their reconstruction and bringing them back to their original condition, the Senate secretariat said. The meeting of the committee, which held here under the chairmanship of Senator Gulshan Saeed, said the country is already passing through the history's worst economic crunch and NATO should be contacted to provide the required money for the early reconstruction of roads which are being ruined by their containers. The meeting also discussed the ongoing projects of Port Qasim Authority (PQA), all projects completed during the three years and financial position of the projects. Pakistan is the shortest route for NATO supplies and two border points – Torkham and Chaman are used for transportation. The Pakistani route is also risky as suspected Taliban militants frequently attack supply trucks.
