Two U.S. military liaison officers have returned to Peshawar, Pakistan in the last week or so to help coordinate communications regarding
border operations, a Pentagon spokesman said Thursday. The officers were removed at Pakistan's request last November after a border strike
by US and NATO forces that killed two dozen Pakistani troops.
Coordination between Pakistan military and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), which includes the U.S. military, is returning in "fits and starts" and communications are improving, said Capt. John Kirby at a Pentagon press conference.
Kirby said Pakistan requested the return of the officers. The US and Pakistan continue to negotiate the reopening of border crossings for war
supplies which were also closed last November.
