伊斯兰堡,6月19日(新华社)——巴基斯坦和阿富汗官员已经同意从下周一开始重开两国间跨境贸易的一条重要通道,旨在促进双边贸易,促进两国的经济活动。


2014年6月,巴基斯坦在对北瓦济里斯坦部落地区的巴基斯坦和外国武装分子发动重大行动后,关闭了古拉姆汗边境,并于2018年3月进行了重新开放边境的试运行。


阿富汗驻巴基斯坦大使马沙尔周四晚向新华社证实,巴基斯坦已同意在下周一开放古兰姆汗过境点。


马沙尔说,古拉姆汗口岸将开放进出口,成为两国双边贸易的第三条主要通道。


他说,阿富汗贸易商还将通过开伯尔-普赫图赫瓦省和巴基斯坦俾路支省的托尔罕和查曼等边境口岸出口新鲜水果。


他说:“现在是阿富汗新鲜水果和蔬菜出口的高峰期,因为这两种水果和蔬菜现在都可以出口了。”


巴基斯坦与阿富汗接壤的北瓦济里斯坦部落地区的一名官员告诉当地媒体,鉴于COVID-19疫情,两国官员已就跨境贸易安排达成一致。


官员们同意,卡车司机和所有参与交易的人将遵循标准操作程序,以控制疾病的传播。司机和清洁工将在边境两侧设立的检疫中心接受检测。

 

ISLAMABAD, June 19 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani and Afghan officials have agreed to reopen a key route for cross-border trade between the two countries starting next Monday, aiming to give a major boost to bilateral trade as it will facilitate economic activities in both countries.

Pakistan had closed the Ghulam Khan border in North Waziristan tribal district in June, 2014 after the military launched a major operation against the Pakistani and foreign militants in the area, and conducted trial run for reopening the border crossing in March, 2018.

Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan Atif Mashal confirmed to Xinhua Thursday evening that Pakistan had agreed to open the Ghulam Khan crossing point next Monday.

Mashal said that Ghulam Khan crossing will be opened for exports and imports, becoming the third major route for bilateral trade between the two countries.

He said Afghan traders will also export their fresh fruits via other border crossings of Torkham and Chaman in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan provinces of Pakistan.

"It is the peak time for Afghan exports of fresh fruits and vegetables as both are now ready for export," the Afghan envoy said.

A Pakistani official in North Waziristan tribal district, bordering Afghanistan, told the media in the region that officials of the two countries had agreed on arrangements for the cross-border trade in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Officials agreed that truck drivers and all involved in the trade will follow the standard operating procedures to contain the spread of the disease. Drivers and cleaners will undergo tests at the quarantine centers established on both sides of the border.
