The US has temporarily pulled out of talks with Pakistan over re-opening vital supply routes to the NATO-led forces in Afghanistan.

However, Pakistan said the talks had not broken down - they were "still on".

Islamabad shut a NATO supply route in November after a NATO air strike near the Afghan-Pakistani border which killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

Part of the US team left Islamabad over the weekend, and the rest will return to the US shortly.
