Islamabad: The Pakistan government will decide the new terms of its engagements with NATO and allies in the war on terror at a joint session of Parliament during February, a minister has said.

A joint session of Parliament would be summoned in the first week of February to finalise the new terms of engagements with NATO and allies regarding the war on terror, Geo News quoted Pakistan Minister for Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan as saying on Friday.

The government would also bring pending legislations in the joint session as a round of consultations with allied parties has already been completed, said the minister outside the Parliament House.

On Thursday, Pakistan`s Foreign Office denied reports about reopening of the NATO supply routes to Afghanistan that had been closed last November following an air strike by NATO helicopters, in which 24 soldiers of the Pakistan Army were killed.

Pakistan on Wednesday had declined to host US Special Envoy Marc Grossman, touring the region for consultations with the US allies about talks with the Afghan Taliban, until a parliamentary review of bilateral relations was completed.
