The U.S. and Pakistan disagree over who should be blamed for the incident, but there are signs that tensions are easing.

The Pakistani army held talks with NATO and Afghan forces Wednesday on how to improve coordination across the Pakistan-Afghanistan border to avoid such incidents in the future.

The top U.S. military commander in the region, Gen. James Mattis, is scheduled to travel to Pakistan this month, the first high-ranking official to visit since the Nov. 26 strikes.

Senior Pakistani officials have said in recent days that the government should reopen its border to NATO supplies as long as it can negotiate better fees from the coalition.
