KABUL: Iran has completely halted trade and closed border with Afghanistan amid seizure of borders by the Taliban and fierce fighting between the Afghan security forces and militants in west and southwest of the country.

Head of Iran-Afghanistan Joint Chamber of Commerce Hossein Salimi said the intensification of violence in Afghanistan has led to a complete halt in trade.

He pointed out the high risk for trade in Afghanistan in the current situation which discouraged the Iranian traders to send their goods.

Salimi said that he is not sure whether Iranian goods have been sold in Afghanistan or not, as the situation does not allow to determine the damage that the Iranian traders have incurred in Afghanistan.
