Pakistan says it will reopen its key Khyber Pass border crossing that is used to ferry supplies to NATO and U.S. troops in Afghanistan "with immediate effect."
The Foreign Ministry said in a statement today that authorities on both sides of the border were working "to ensure smooth resumption of the supply traffic."
Pakistan closed the northwest crossing at Torkham on September 30, the same day a NATO air strike killed two Pakistani soldiers along the border.
The closure had exposed stranded supply trucks in Pakistan to militant attacks that destroyed more than 100 vehicles
