Angoor Ada crossing reopens after prolonged closure

Apr 22, 2017 - 20:15

SHARANA (Pajhwok): The Angoor Ada border crossing between Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistaninfo-icon in southeastern Paktika province has been reopened after a protracted closure.

Pakistan in mid-February closed all border crossings with Afghanistan following a string of deadly attacks in the country.

A police official in the Angoor Ada, a buffering town, told Pajhwok Afghan News on the condition of anonymity, that the border crossing was opened for traffic on Friday afternoon. “We also allowed vehicles on this side to move after receiving order from the government.”

A resident of Barmal district, Falak Sher, said the border crossing had been closed for three months. “We were facing a lot of problems due to the border closure. It was nice job to open the border.”

A trader in Paktika, Mohammad Ibrahim, said vehicles crossed the border between the two countries since yesterday.

He said a large number of vehicles had arrived at the customs office to pay duty since Friday when the border crossing was reopened.
