ISLAMABAD Islamabad is all set to press Washington for a mutually agreed mechanism for settlement of issue with related to compensation payment, worth millions of dollars, for using Pakistans roads by the trucks hired by the US for Afghanistan mission supplies. Well-placed diplomatic and government sources informed TheNation on Sunday that Pakistan apart from sixteen-point agenda for the two-day second round of US-Pakistan Strategic Dialogue to be held in Washington on October 21, would also take up the issue related to payment of compensation amount. Sources said that Pakistani team would be headed by Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi while Pakistani Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani would also participate in the talks. US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton would lead the US team that would also include senior military and defence officials. I am not sure whether Pakistan delegation would raise the issue related to roads compensation payments, US Embassy Spokesperson, Rick Snelsire told TheNation. He, however, confirmed that both sides would deliberate on at least fifteen issues relating to different ministries including defence. However, the Government of Pakistan said that Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani had already taken up the issue of compensation payment with the senior US officials and relevant ministries were busy finalising different proposals in this regard. Sources were of the view that Pakistan had estimated average monthly losses to the tune of $90 million but had also demanded compensation since the US military had started using Pakistani roads and highways in 2002. The US Government had paid millions of dollars to Afghanistan in this connection, and remained oblivious to Pakistans losses, which the Government had decided to seek from the US, UK, NATO and other countries their armed forces were operating under the flag of International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan. Sources further said that Pakistani delegation would also press for decision over the trade and investment concession. Apart from these developments, Pakistani Government is also working on proposals to separately demand of NATO to pay compensation amount for using roads.
