Pakistan Decides to  Allow Afghan Exports to  India Via Wagah Border

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Monday said it has decided to resume Afghan exports through Wagah border crossing from 15 July.
“At the special request of the Government of Afghanistan and with a view to facilitating Afghanistan’s transit trade, Pakistan has decided to resume Afghan exports through Wagah border crossing from 15 July 2020, after implementing COVID-19 related protocols,” Pakistan’s foreign ministry said in a statement.
