Pakistan to allow Afghan vehicles to pass Wagah border without hurdles

Pakistan’s Commerce Minister Khurram Dastagir assured that Afghan vehicles would not be kept for more than 2 days at Pakistan’s ports.

His comments followed after his visit to Kabul to discuss news ways of economic cooperation between the neighboring nations and resolving the transit issues.

He added that only 20% of Afghan goods would be checked and scanned before being allowed to go to Afghanistan. In the past, the vehicles would be allowed after 100 percent checking to get permission for crossing the border into Afghanistan.

Dastagir said Afghan traders’ goods would be permitted to pass Wagar port without any hurdle.

According to Pakistan’s The News, Dastagir announced that the railway line would be constructed up to Torkham port, adding 400 containers of goods would reach Torkham with low cost after the month of July, this year.
