Despite the tensions between Pakistan and Afghanistan at the Karachi Port, Afghan Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Janan Mosazai emphasized on improving trade relations with Pakistan.

He added that the Afghan government is making efforts to fully implement the transit agreement with Pakistan.

Pakistan had previously violated the transit agreement, according to Mr. Mosazai, but the Afghan government insisted on mending the trade relations between the two countries.

About 4,000 Afghan containers are hindered at the Karachi Port over the past 85 days and are being charged fines for using the port space.
