General Allen's Pakistan visit postponed

Islamabad, Aug. 31 (ANI): Top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, General John Allen, has postponed his visit to Pakistan, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said, without specifying any reasons.

According to a statement released by ISPR, a new date of General Allen's visit will be announced later, reports The Express Tribune.

General Allen was due to hold talks with Army Chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani on the recently evolved border coordination measures.

Recently Allen had said through an article in the Washington Post that Taliban leader Mullah Muhammad Omar was hiding in Pakistan and sending fighters to Afghanistan for attacks.

Relations between the two countries have improved in the recent months following Pakistan's decision to lift a seven-month long ban on vital supply routes for NATO forces stationed in Afghanistan. (ANI)
