US Congressional report on Monday said that the supply of cargo for its troops in Afghanistan is not now dependent on Pakistan supply route.
The report says that currently about 29% of US supply is coming through Pakistan, which is about 50% less than a year ago.
After Nato air strike on two Pakistani checkpoints that killed 24 soldiers, the country has blocked foreign supply route into Afghanistan.
Pakistani officials asked the US government to vacate Shamsi airbase which was located in southeast of the country and used for drone operations against insurgents.
Since 2009, Nato has increased transportation of supplies through northern borders of Afghanistan which passes Uzbekistan and nearly 75 percent of supplies comes through this route.
