BRUSSELS: NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Friday that Pakistan had not been invited to the upcoming Chicago summit.
Rasmussen added that China, Russia and India have also not been invited to the conference. Invitations were given to Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Morocco.
Speaking to reporters, Rasmussen asked Pakistan to restore the NATO supply route.
“Our supply should be unblocked immediately,” Rasmussen said in reply to a question.
The May 20-21 summit will be the biggest NATO summit in history, with more than 60 countries and organizations represented.
The United States anticipates three results from the summit:
• An agreement on an interim milestone in 2013 when the International Security Assistance Force's mission will shift from combat to support for the Afghan national security forces;
• An agreement on the size, cost and sustainment of the Afghan forces beyond 2014; and
• A road-map for NATO's post-2014 role in Afghanistan.
