India hits out at Pakistan for blocking Indo-Afghan trade


india-pak-tradeIndia today hit out at Pakistan for blocking Indo-Afghan trade via Attari border saying nations cannot become walls aborting trade and culture that is as old as written history.

Pakistan is reported to have blocked Indo-Afghan trade via Attari border for political reasons.

Asserting that the fangs of terrorism recognise no borders, Minister of State for External Affairs M J Akbar said, peace is essential to development; terrorism is anathema to development.

Addressing a meeting on ‘Regional Integration and Prosperity’ at the Brussels Conference on Afghanistan, Akbar said, the scale of terrorism and violence unleashed against Afghanistan is of a magnitude that simply does not allow for easy project implementation, efficient delivery of assistance or the rapid inflow of investments into an economy that has huge resources and obvious potential.

He stated that the international community must ensure security if it wants stability and economic development in Afghanistan. India has offered a special facility at the Attari border for Afghan products coming to India via Pakistan, he said at the meet also attended by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

Unfortunately, this access has been blocked for political reasons by Pakistan. Akbar said, however, India will continue to work with Afghanistan for assured and reliable access for Afghanistan’s products to India’s markets through land, sea and air. The full utilisation of Afghanistan’s transit rights as a member of WTO will enable greater prosperity.

Talking about India’s support for increasing connectivity with Afghanistan, Akbar said, an exciting and innovative future is taking shape through the recent trilateral India-Iran-Afghanistan agreement in Tehran in May 2016, which makes Chahbahar into a hub for immense economic opportunity.
