U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top commander of U.S. and international force in Afghanistan, met Monday with Pakistani Army Gen. Ashfaq Kayani in Islamabad.
Both leaders during their meeting at the Pakistani army headquarters discussed the security of supplies traveling across Pakistan to international forces in Afghanistan, Pakistani newspaper The Nation reports.
Militants attacked a NATO supply convoy Wednesday in Pakistan. At least seven people died when insurgents attacked about 20 trucks set to deliver supplies to international forces operating in Afghanistan.
Pakistani authorities said it was difficult for security forces in the country to provide safe passage for the estimated 4,000 trucks passing through the region each day.
NATO supply convoys have increasingly come under militant attacks. NATO is said to be examining safer routes through Russia and central Asia.
McChrystal during his meetings promised to keep Pakistan up to date on the latest military operations in Afghanistan.
U.S. President Barack Obama linked Pakistan to the war in Afghanistan when he rolled out his new strategy in Central Asia in December.
