Trade continues at Pakistan, Iran border
Economic activity has resumed at Pakistan, the Taftan Border with Iran, as the border was open after more than two months.
According to media reports, trade activities between the two countries will continue three times a week in line with normal operating procedures, border officials told. Pakistani authorities had closed the border in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic.
Iranian trucks carrying food items and liquefied petroleum gas arrived in Pakistan after the border opened for trade.
National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) took the decision concerning the resumption of trade between the two countries.
Last month, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, leaders on both sides, stressed the need to resume cross-border trade, reopen border markets and reinforce trade ties in line with health regulations.
