KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Afghanistaninfo-icon has not exported a single item to India through the Attari-Wagah border in the last fortnight, says a media report.

Many Indian importers had placed orders for goods from Afghanistan, The Hindustan Times reported, but trucks were barred from crossing the Chaman border.

Indian entrepreneurs believe the Pakistaninfo-icon government is not allowing the free movement of trucks from Afghanistan.

Trade through the Integrated Check Post (ICP) in Attari remained suspended for more than two months to check the spread of the coronavirus.

Indo-Afghan trade resumed on May 28 after Pakistan opened the Chaman and Torkham border crossings in mid-May, the newspaper said.

Indian traders import dry fruit, herbs, cumin and liquorice (mulethi) from Afghanistan. Since May 29, no truck from Afghanistan has entered India through Wagah.

“Pakistan is not allowing goods movement through the Chaman border,” alleged Federation of Karyana and Dry Fruit Association president Anil Mehra.
