Pakistani government on Monday ordered immediate reopening of border with Afghanistan.
Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif cited goodwill gesture while ordering reopening of the border.
He said that Afghanistan and Pakistan have shared culture and religion, adding closure of the border is against economic benifits.
Pakistan closed the border with Afghanistan over a month ago citing security concerns.
Travellers in Torkham told 1TV that the crossing pointwas open.
The closure caused huge economic loss on both sides of the border with hundreds of cargo trucks stranded near the border.
In a statement, the Pakistani leader suggested that fresh terror attacks in his country are linked with sanctuaries in Afghanistan.
He hoped that Afghanistan will take necessary measures on countering terrorism.
"We have always reiterated commitment that stability in Pakistan is linked to stability in Afghanistan and in order to fully eliminate terrorism in both the countries, we will continue to cooperate with the Afghan government," he said.
