Interior Ministry announces closure of all borders for two more weeks
April 13, 2020
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Interior Ministry on Monday ordered to close all borders for two more weeks to curb the spread of coronavirus. On April 6, the authorities had reopened the Pak-Afghan border for three days at Torkham and Chaman. The borders were opened for the Afghan citizens from April 6 to 9. At the special request of the Afghanistan government and based on humanitarian considerations on April 4, Pakistan had decided to allow the exit of Afghan nationals in Pakistan who are wishing to go back to their country. The Foreign Office spokesman said that the Torkham and Chaman land border crossings will be opened for a specific period from April 6 to April 9, 2020 to facilitate the Afghan nationals. As a neighbour and in view of fraternal bilateral relations, Pakistan remains in abiding solidarity with the people of Afghanistan, particularly at this time of global pandemic. On the other hand, the authorities are likely to further extend the suspension of the train service by end of Ramazanul Mubarik.
