Dawn News Agency reported that in three-day visit of Pakistani delegation to Kabul, they and Taliban have reached an agreement to facilitate bilateral trade, especially coal for use in power generation.
The report added that two sides agreed to implement a Temporary Admission Document (TAD) allowing free movement of bilateral trade vehicles and preventing the loading and unloading of goods at the border crossing points with the view to further increasing trade between the two countries.
All possible steps will be taken to begin luxury bus service between Peshawar and Jalalabad, as well as Quetta and Kandahar, with the goal of starting the service by the end of August this year.
A Pakistani official said the coal import will address the Pakistan’s energy security to a large extent.
Pakistani media reported that the country is the sole importer of goods from Afghanistan.
However after Taliban’s domination, the export of Pakistan to Afghanistan has significantly reduced.
