Afghan-Bound Trucks to Unload in Specified Destinations

KABUL - The Afghan Commerce and Industries Ministry on Saturday said Afghan-bound trucks will unload in targeted destination, dismissing the possible unloading of trucks inside Pakistan. Based on the latest transit trade agreement between Afghanistan and Pakistan, trucks could be unload in last specified destinations, officials in ministry of commerce and industries said.

Pakistan has expressed concern about Afghan-bound trucks dropping off their loads inside Pakistan. Commerce and Industries Ministry spokesman Waheedullah Ghazikhel said if transit trade agreement is fully implemented, there won't be any problems in the future.

"Commodities loaded for Afghanistan haven't been sold inside Pakistan and we haven't noticed such a case," Commerce and Industries Spokesman Waheedullah Ghazikhel said.

Commerce ministry said it fully agrees that two months have been set to dispel doubts about problems in the trade transit agreement. Officials said Afghanistan is ready for the implementation of the agreement. It comes as around 5,000 Afghan-bound containers were stopped by Pakistan and were allowed to leave for Afghanistan after two months.
