Kabul: The top NATO commander in Afghanistan
says he`s seeing signs of a possible lifting of Pakistan`s
communications blackout imposed on the US-led coalition after
NATO airstrikes killed two dozen Pakistani forces.

Marine Gen. John Allen tells reporters at a news briefing
in Kabul that he recently spoke on the phone with Pakistan
army chief Gen. Ashfaq Pervez Kayani.

Allen says that by the end of the call on Monday, both
expressed a commitment to work through the incident.

He says he believes Pakistan will soon send liaison
officials back to NATO headquarters in Kabul that were pulled
after the November 26 incident.

Allen says the two did not discuss when Pakistan would
reopen its border crossings to NATO convoys transporting
supplies for troops in Afghanistan.
