Pakistan rules out India-Afghan trade through Wagah border

Pakistan has ruled out possibility of linking access to Afghanistan through Wagah border for transportation of Indian goods, saying that the transit trade was a bilateral and not a trilateral issue, according to a media report.

“We have asked Afghanistan for not linking trade access through Wagah border and they agreed to it because the transit trade was bilateral issue and it was not trilateral thing to bring any other into it,” Prime Minister’s Adviser to Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood said while addressing a news conference on Wednesday.

On the Afghan Transit Trade (ATT), after exchanging proposals through working groups in the aftermath of Afghan President’s visit to Pakistan, Dawood said he would be visiting Kabul between August 20 to 30 as Afghan Ambassador extended an invitation, The News International reported.

“Kabul is ready to initiate talks on Preferential Trade Agreement (PTA),” he added.
