Pakistan closed the Torkham border on Wednesday morning, Afghan officials cofirmed.
Nangarhar governor’s spokesman Attaullah Khogyani confirmed that Pakistan has closed the Torkham crossing (which connects Pakistan & Afghanistan in the east) due to some security reasons on Wednesday morning.
“Talks with Pakistan about reopening the crossing are ongoing”, Khogyani said.
However, some security sources underline that the clash between the Afghan frontier forces and the Pakistani militia is the cause of the shutdown.
Torkham is an important border for Afghanistan business transits that come through Karachi port.
