Main trade route between Afghanistan and Pakistan reopens

Trade activities will soon resume through the Ghulam Khan trade route between Afghanistan and Pakistan after its reopening on Monday.

The trade route was closed during a military offensive in the tribal region of North Waziristan.

 However, the Angor Ada border crossing in South Waziristan Agency, Nawa Pass and Ghakhi Pass in Bajaur remain closed for all sorts of trade and business activities, according to Pakistan Customs, Immigration Wing of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

Afghan transporters are happy about the reopening of the route as they faced many hardships at Torkham and Chaman.

The route remained closed since June 15, 2014 after Pakistan security forces launched an operation against militants.
