Pentagon has expressed confidence that U.S.-Pakistani relations can be improved, and that Islamabad soon will re-open routes used to supply American troops in Afghanistan.

Government of Pakistan closed two crucial border crossings used for some time by the U.S. military in Chaman and Torkham after a Nov. 26 NATO strike that killed two dozen Pakistan Army troops in Mohmand Agency. That was just the latest incident to further escalate tensions between Washington and Islamabad.
Pentagon spokesman George Little told reporters Wednesday he believes the Pakistan supply routes would be re-opened to the U.S. military soon.
He stressed that American forces have โ€œstockpilesโ€ of what they need, describing the troops as โ€œwell supplied.โ€

More broadly, Little also touched on the tense and fragile U.S.-Pakistani relationship, which has been on a downward spiral since American commandos killed Osama bin Laden near Islamabad in early May.
