Pakistan to restart work on incomplete projects

Pakistan has promised resumption of work on several incomplete projects in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Finance said on Monday.

A statement from the ministry said President Hamid Karzai discussed the issue with his Pakistani counterpart, Asif Ali Zardari, on the sidelines of a regional summit in Dushanbe.

Finance Minister Hazrat Omar Zakhilwal, who assisted Karzai at the meeting, asked Pakistan officials to restart work on projects like the Torkham-Jalalabad highway, Jinnah Hospital in Kabul, Balkh University, a hospital in Logar and a kidney centre in Jalalabad.

The Afghan side also asked the Pakistanis to launch work on a railway track in Torkham on their side of the border, so Afghanistan could connect its fledgling railway lines with it.

Zardari pledged the resumption of work on the projects in Afghanistan. The Pakistani side said they would discuss the issue of railway line with Japan in the near future.
