Call to let goods-laden trucks enter Afghanistan

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): The Afghanistaninfo-icon-Pakistaninfo-icon Joint Chamber of Commerce and Industries has welcomed the reopening of the border as a good decision.

Ziaul Haq Sarhadi, senior vice-president of chamber, demanded thousands of goods-laden trucks be allowed to enter the land-locked country.

The News quoted him as saying 2,000 trucks loaded with goods were waiting at various places in Khyber Agency and Peshawar to enter Afghanistan.

With the closure of the Durand Lineinfo-icon 20 days back, all trade activities via Torkham came to a halt. Afghans, who had come to Pakistan, were left stranded.

However, the busy crossing reopened on Tuesday when thousands of Afghans crossed over to their country. Some 10,000 Afghans will return home in two days.
