Aizaz vows to strive for boosting Pak-US ties

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has ordered to reopen Pak-Afghan border, reported Waqt News.

According to the premier, he is convinced that the border closure for a long time in the backdrop of religious, cultural and historical ties between the two countries would not be in the interest of the people and the economy.

The prime minister ordered the authorities to reopen the border immediately as a gesture of goodwill while keeping in sight the businesses affected.

Noting that Pakistan had eliminated nearly all terrorist safe havens from FATA [Federally Administered Tribal Areas], Ambassador Chaudhary said the United States lawmakers and generals, who visited the region, also appreciated this achievement.

"The recent incidents of terrorism in Pakistan have been traced back to anti-Pakistan elements in Afghanistan", Sharif said.

Sharif hoped the Afghan Government would take measures to eliminate terrorists present on their soil.

"In order to provide an opportunity to those nationals of Afghanistan who had come to Pakistan on valid visas and wish to return to their country", stated the press release of Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Pakistan and Afghanistan share a 2,600-kilometer largely porous border, with five dedicated crossings for legal movements, including bilateral and transit trade convoys, transporting imported goods to the landlocked country from the Pakistani port of Karachi on the Arabian Sea.

They have now been closed for about two weeks, without adequate reasons, causing enormous hardship to ordinary people and a lot of damage to traders on both sides, Zakhilwal continued. However, we also expect some amicable solution to the problems so that the two countries can resume trade.”.

The Prime Minister reiterated that lasting peace was vital in Afghanistan for the peace and security of Paksitan.

Attahullah Khogyani, a spokesman for the governor of the Afghan province of Nangarhar governor, said border talks are ongoing but the gates at Torkham haven't been opened yet. In response, the government in Kabul asked Islamabad to take action against 85 leaders of the Afghan Taliban, Haqqani Network and other groups it says uses the country for bases and safe refuge.
