ACCI wants to end trade relations with Pakistan

Afghan trucks in KarachiThe Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI) have decided to end trade relations with Pakistan after Pakistan failed to fulfill its promise to release the Afghan containers stalled in Karachi Port.

Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf had ordered the release of the 3000 containers belonging to Afghan traders earlier this month, but no action has been taken so far.

“Despite so much effort, the government has now failed to resolve our problems with Pakistan and we are forced to end our relations with Pakistan,” Tolo News quotes ACCI Deputy Khan Jan Alokozay.

According to Mr. Alokozay, this matter has caused a daily loss of USD 600,000 to the traders, which will discourage them from doing business via Karachi.

Mr. Alokozay called on the Afghan government to prevent Pakistani-loaded vehicles from entering Afghanistan, even those whose destination is a different country.
