Afghanistan has optional routes if enemies think to block trade routes: Ghani

By Khaama Press - Sat Mar 25 2017, 5:58 pm

President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has said optional routes are available for Afghanistan if the enemies of the country think to block the trade route to the country.

Speaking during a gathering in Mazar-e-Sharif city, the provincial capital of Balkh, President Ghani said Afghanistan has become an inseparable part of the Central Asia.

President Ghani further added that the northern Kunduz, Mazar and Herat provinces will be connected via railway network that will eventually connect Iran and China via Afghanistan.

He also added that the historic Balkh province will once again become the roundabout of the Central Asia.

This comes as Afghanistan has been heavily dependent on transit route linking the country through Pakistan.

The latest political and security upheavals resulted into deteriorating relations between Kabul and Islamabad that led to the closure of the transit routes located along the Durand Line.

The routes were opened last week after almost three weeks of closure as the Pakistani officials claimed that the step was taken to prevent the movement of the terrorists from the other side of the Durand Line.

They had also claimed that a series of deadly attacks in key cities of Pakistan were plotted by the terrorists using the Afghan soil, an allegation the Afghan officials have rejected and vowed to cooperate with Islamabad to jointly work to eliminate the threats posed by the terrorist groups using the soils of the two countries.

  1. So he is calling Pakistan an enemy and at the same time he is asking for the trade route ! What kind of a president he is !

  2. What a nutjob u r Mr. Prez. You country almost died last week and begged us to open the gates but still ur long tongue doesnt stop bullshitting. You must be high on opium again.  

  3. Good for you having other options, but your economy can barely afford Pakistan, now that you have called my country your enemy who strangles your trade, and kill your people, you better take a look at who made us your ‘enemy’ it’s all your fault! Afghans started war on Pakistan in 1948 we still ignore your stupidity youve been keeping up with for 70 years and achieved nothing but destruction of your own country. You can’t afford Iran or others that’s the fact. Better take a tour in market and check out what prices poor people are paying these days.
