The Torkham and Spin Boldak crossings that connect Afghanistan with Pakistan by land were opened on Friday for the transit of goods, as announced earlier this week, an official said.
Nangarhar governor’s spokesman Attaullah Khogyani said the crossings will remain open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The transit of goods was stopped for the past 25 days due to the spread of the coronavirus.
According to Afghanistan-Pakistan Joint Chamber of Commerce and Industry, at least 10,000 containers of food supplies will be transported to Afghanistan following the opening of the crossings.
The closure of transit and trade roadways has impacted groceries and other supplies prices in local markets as the coronavirus spreads.
