NATO: Pakistan Cooperates on New Border Incident

NATO says Pakistan is showing signs it might be willing to cooperate with the coalition again in the wake of NATO airstrikes that killed 24 Pakistani troops.

NATO spokesman in Kabul, German Brig. Gen. Carsten Jacobson, said Wednesday that Pakistani security forces fully cooperated with NATO during a cross-border incident the night before in Paktia province along the border. He says details about who was firing at whom are still being collected and that no one was injured in the incident.

Jacobson says communication between the two sides is necessary to coordinate actions against insurgents and avert friendly fire incidents.

The Pakistan military had no immediate comment.
