KP customs agents upset over blockade

PESHAWER: Frontier Customs Agents Group (FCAG) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chairman Zia-ul-Haq Sarhadi and senior Vice President Arooj Ahmad Ansari have said that the breaking of the seal of containers carrying Afghanistan-bound commercial cargo is detrimental for bilateral trade between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

In a statement issued by FCAG, the office-bearers expressed concerns over the halting of Nato supply which according to them was affecting Afghan Transit Trade and Afghanistan-bound commercial cargo. They urged the government to deploy officials at toll plazas to ensure the safe transportation of Afghan transit trade and commercial cargo.

Zia-ul-Haq Sarhadi, also being a former senior vice president of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chamber of Commerce & Industry, said that 80 per cent of Afghan Transit Trade had already shifted to Bandar Abbass Port of Iran from Karachi Port and the remaining 20 would be abolished due to the steps of the political workers of a particular party.
