ISLAMABAD:  General John Allen, top US commander stationed in Afghanistan, is expected to arrive in Pakistan on Wednesday to discuss the restoration of Nato supply routes, DawnNews reported.

General Allen will meet Chief of Army Staff Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani to discuss the restoration. General Allen and Kayani will oversee the developments on implementation of cross-border contact as well.

Restoration of Nato supply routes will remain the foremost priority during the meeting.

Nato supply routes have been closed since November 2011, when Nato air strike killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

US and Pakistani diplomats frequently discuss the restoration; however, no viable solution has been reached.
