US and NATO forces in Afghanistan would get the supplies they needed to perform their operations despite closure of Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan, Pentagon officials said.

During a press conference here, Pentagon Press Secretary George Little and Navy Capt. John Kirby hoped that Pakistan would reopen the border between the countries and return its troops to the border coordination centers.

The war effort in Afghanistan continued unabated by the closures, Little said. “We’re well-aware of the closures and potential impacts,” he said. “To date, there’s been no significant impact to our ability to provide for the war effort. That being said, we do believe that these are important supply routes, and we hope that in the near future they can be reopened.
