Nato is planning for an Exit plan from Afghanistan during the NATO summit in Chicago. ?It is reported that they have charted an outwardly confident path to a postwar Afghanistan, there were potential splits in the coalition and warnings that bloodshed will continue, and perhaps escalate, when allied troops withdraw.
But the big question is how will the exit of over 100 thousand troops will happen, and how will their heavy cargo be shifted from Afghanistan to their respective places.
Troops and some heavy arms will be taken by aeroplanes, all the rest will need to go via land routes. Afghanistan has no sea shore it is surrounded by land.
There can be 2 main ways for the exit From Kabul by road via Khyber pass and then to Karachi by sea, but this route was closed by Pakistan last year (2011)
Other route will be from the Northern Afghanistan by tain which will reach Letvia?thru Russia travelling 4660 Kilometers.
There are other problems too. From Afghanistan the train goes via Uzbekistan Russia?Kyrgyzstan.
Kyrgyzstan will be an important transit but it has a lot of political unsuitability.
Pakistan is a very important route for the exit of NATO but there is a lot of?resentment?in the public against NATO and the troops passing through the route have been attached regularly in the past.
Russia is an important airbase and transit point but NATO does not enjoy friendly relations.
