The Pak-Afghan border was closed for trade activities on Friday and security was beefed up as the Afghan elections approach on October 20.
The Bab-e-Dosti gate at the Pak-Afghan border was closed for trade activities for two days.
Security officials said in order to ensure peaceful Afghan elections and avoid any incidents, the Pak-Afghan border has been closed for pedestrians as well.
The sealing of the Bab-e-Dosti gate for the Afghan elections was mutually agreed upon by both countries at the Bab-e-Dosti conference.
The FIA’s visa section at the Chaman border was also closed. Many passenger and cargo trucks are parked near the border waiting for it to reopen.
