NATO, Afghan and Pakistani military officials are holding talks aimed at improving security along the Pakistan-Afghan border.

The Pakistani army says Wednesday's meeting will take place at a border coordination center and will be attended by the director-general of military operations, Major-General Ishfaq Nadeem Ahmed.

The talks are the first sign of easing tensions following a cross-border NATO air attack that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers on November 26.

Shortly after Pakistan closed NATO supply routes to Afghanistan, plunging relations with the United States to an all-time low.

Pakistan has since signaled that it may soon re-open the supply routes.
