ISLAMABAD: Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the chief of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), has said the nation was on the same page over the restrictions on Nato supply lines to Afghanistan.

United States Ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter Tuesday called on Fazl to discuss strained relations between the two allies, restoration of supply lines and other matters.

Addressing the media after the meeting, Fazl said the US badly wanted the restoration of supply lines.
