The border between Afghanistan and Pakistan is expected to reopen within the next 24 hours, a Pakistani newspaper reported Saturday.
The News reported the matter citing sources in the Pakisan-Afghanistan Joint Chamber of Commerce Industries.
According to the paper, high-ranking officials in Islamabad had assured the chamber chairman Zubair Motiwala that the border would be reopened within the next 24 hours.
Trade between Afghanistan and Pakistan remains suspended after Pakistan closed major crossing points a month ago over security concerns.
The closure of the border has resulted in hundreds of thousands dollars in lost trade on both sides and tons of perishable commodities have rotted in trucks.
