Violation: Afghan Customs stops Pakistani trucks at border


Afghan Customs has banned transportation of Afghan transit goods carried by Pakistani trucks in Afghanistan.

According to details, Afghan Customs, violating the Pak-Afghan trade treaty, stopped Pakistani trucks at zero point at Pak-Afghan border asking them to offload the goods at Zero Point.

In protest against the move, Pakistani Truck Association stopped supply of Afghan transit goods to Afghanistan, causing long queue of vehicles outside the Chaman Customs.

“It is a sheer violation of Pak-Afghan trade treaty,” said the annoyed truck driver who appealed to the relevant Pakistani authorities to take notice of the occasion.
