Torkham border remains shut for fourth day

The Torkham border crossing remained closed on Wednesday for the fourth day, after a row over the legal documents for Afghans travelling to Pakistan.

Officials said backdoor talks were taking place with the Afghan authorities to persuade the Afghan Taliban to reopen the border and allow the truckers and people to cross the border.

Hundreds of trucks loaded with different goods, including vegetables and fresh fruit were seen parked on the Peshawar-Torkham road.

Afghan authorities had closed the border four days ago after Pakistan denied entry to an Afghan patient who was travelling to Peshawar for medical treatment reports

Meanwhile, the Sarhad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) on Wednesday urged the Afghan Taliban to reopen the Torkham border crossing and allow the stranded trucks loaded with food and other perishable goods.
