Trade resumes after key Afghan border crossing with Pakistan reopens

TRUCKS carrying food and pharmaceuticals crossed through a key border crossing between Pakistan and Afghanistan after it reopened today, almost a week after Taliban authorities shut the busiest trading waypoint.

Relations between the two nations have soured since the Taliban took power in August 2021, with Islamabad accusing its neighbour of harbouring militant groups that have carried out strikes on its soil – a charge Kabul denies.
