Wagah border open for Afghans: Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Ministry

Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Ministry has said Wagar border is open for Afghan traders as part of the Afghan-Pak bilateral agreement.

In an interview with BBC Urdu, Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said Pakistan had not stopped Afghan traders from moving their products to India through the Wagah border.

“Pakistan is fulfilling its commitment to the Afghan people by providing them a trade transit facility,” he told BBC Urdu.

He added that only Indian goods could not be imported into Afghanistan through Pakistan’s soil.

This comes after President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani warned that Afghanistan would ban Pakistan from using Afghan transit routes to reach Central Asia.

President Ghani made this statement in a meeting with Britain’s special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Owen Jenkins, in Kabul on Friday.

According to Pakistan’s the Express Tribune, Pakistan’s trade ministry has also denied this charge and said Afghan products were allowed to go to India through Wagah under the Pak-Afghan transit trade agreement.
