(MENAFN- Wadsam) Afghanistan and Pakistan are expected to ink the fresh
Afghan Transit Trade (ATT) agreement and the Preferential Trade Agreement (PTA)
by the end of January 2021.
However, Islamabad has refused to allow access to India
through Wagah border.
'We hope that the revised APTTA would be signed by the end
of next month when Pakistani team would be visiting Kabul. This three-days
deliberation would not consider granting access to India,' the news quotes adviser
to PM on Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood.
Both sides on Monday kick-started 8th session of APTTA
Coordination Authority deliberations for finalizing transit arrangement.
Afghan Minister for Commerce and Industry Nisar Ahmad
Ghoryani said the Afghan government remained committed to boosting trade
relations between the two nations, and added that Afghanistan wanted to give
