No Afghan Trucks Crossed Pakistan’s Reopened Wagah Border Says India

No Afghan goods trucks crossed the Pakistan-India Wagah border at the Attari integrated checkpost on Wednesday, India said.

Pakistan reopened the Wagah border crossing with India on July 15 to facilitate Afghan transit trade with the country.

The Afghan-India bilateral trade was being opposed by a strong lobby of Pakistani traders and some politicians, Indian media reported, adding that it could take two to three days before Afghan trucks reach Wagah.

Pakistan Muslim League’s Aisha Ghaus Pasha had opposed the government’s decision to open the crossing and said they had not taken the parliament into confidence.
