PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pak-Afghan transit trade remains unaffected by Islamabad’s decision to suspend bilateral trade with New Delhi.

In Islamabad, the Ministry of Commerce said on Friday the Afghanistaninfo-icon-Pakistaninfo-icon Transit Trade Agreement (APTTAinfo-icon), 2010 remained effective despite Islamabad-Delhi tensions.

Pakistani businessmen fear the suspension of trade with India could spur the smuggling of Indian goods in the garb of APTTA.

On August 9, the ministry had issued a statutory regulatory order suspending trade links with India, including a ban on all kinds of imports and exports
