NATO has agreed with Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan on the use of the territories of the Central Asian countries for withdrawal of vehicles and military armament from Afghanistan, BBC News writes citing the statement of Nato Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

"These agreements will give us a range of new options and the robust and flexible transport network that we need," he said. However, he refused to comment the issue of payment for the transit.

According to Pakistani The Nation , NATO continues negotiations with Islamabad on transit of cargoes. “Talks are ongoing with Pakistan regarding the resumption of the route. I still hope that a solution can be found in a very near future,” Rasmussen said.

NATO has faced much problems with withdrawal of its troops from Afghanistan. Six months ago Pakistan blocked the transit of NATO vehicles. Before than over one third of NATO forces were passing through Pakistan on the way to Afghanistan. However, the relations between Washington and Islamabad deteriorated after the murder of the head of Al-Qaeda Osama bin Laden.
