Afraid Of Afghan President’s Threat, Pakistan Says Afghanistan Can Trade With India Via Wagah

Published on 11 September, 2016 at 3:23 pm By

Less than 24 hours after Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani practically threatened Pakistan, Islamabad almost bowed before Kabul and issued a statement saying that it has not done anything to disrupt Afghan-India trade via the Wagah border.

“Pakistan is fulfilling its commitment to the Afghan people by providing them a trade transit facility,” Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria told BBC Urdu on Saturday.

But Pakistan added that under Islamabad’s bilateral agreement with Kabul, only Indian goods could not be imported into Afghanistan through Pakistan.



On Friday night Ghani had threatened to block Pakistan’s land route via Afghanistan that connects Islamabad to Central Asian countries if his country was not allowed to take their goods to India via Wagah.

Ghani accused Islamabad of closing the transit routes during the fruit season resulting in a loss of millions of dollars to Afghan traders.

Afghanistan said that Pakistan must let Afghan traders carry fruits in trucks to Attari and transfer to Indian trucks in a back to back arrangement.

The Afghan President said that India had agreed to exempt Afghanistan from financial tariff for the export of fruits to the country.
