Pakistan’s Commerce and Investment Adviser, Abdul Razak Dawood, announced that both Pakistan and Afghanistan have permitted the free passage of trucks from the border crossings in their respective countries.
When Dawood announced the historic development on the regional connectivity front, he used Twitter to spread the word. The trucks will be able to pass freely across borders from March 21.
Afghan carriers can receive a TAD from the Pakistani Embassy in Kabul and the Pakistani Consulate in Kandahar, while transporters from Pakistan can obtain a TAD from the Pakistani Consulates in Peshawar and Quetta, according to Abdul Razak Dawood.
In a tweet, Dawood said that the development was “historic” and that it would “go a long way toward boosting our connectivity and commercial links with Afghanistan, Central Asia, and beyond.”
