AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: A senator of Pakistan’s Federal Administered Tribal Area (FATA) has said that he was optimistic that the cross-borders would be reopened for commute and business affairs from next week.
Senator Taj Muhammad Afridi was addressing a gathering for the inauguration of a girls’ school in the Landikotal area of the Khyber Agency.
He said that the traders and daily wagers have been suffered billion of rupees losses due to the closure of Torkham and Chaman crossing points.
Afridi added that Pashtuns in Pakistan had been weakened through various tactics. “Such steps will deepen the rift between the two countries.”
Crossing points have been closed by Pakistan after a terrorist attack targeted the Sufi Shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sindh province, aiming at pretending as to be the victims of terrorism. The international community has come to know the distinction of Pakistan between good and bad Taliban and exporting terrorists into Afghanistan to undermine US-led NATO mission in the country.
All these have led to push Pakistan towards regional and international isolation. According to political and security analysts, Pakistan is plotting terrorist activities against its own people, closure of crossing points and blame game was meant to overcome the ongoing isolation by pretending as a victim of terrorism.
