Pakistani media have reported that issuing “temporary travel permits” for Afghan commercial trucks has begun, with the first trucks from Afghanistan entering Pakistan.

The Pakistani newspaper Dawn recently reported, citing officials from the Pakistan-Afghanistan Joint Chamber of Commerce, that Pakistan started issuing “temporary travel permits” to Afghan commercial trucks on Sunday, June 2.

Previously, Pakistan had made obtaining a “temporary travel permit” mandatory for Afghan vehicles.

According to the Dawn newspaper, the first convoy of Afghan commercial trucks entered Pakistan through the Kharlachi border crossing after receiving their travel permits.

Mohibullah, the consul of the Taliban in Peshawar, stated that they are also issuing similar documents to Pakistani commercial trucks.

Pakistan reports that 6,000 registered Afghan cargo trucks and 9,000 Pakistani trucks transport goods between the countries.

Pakistani officials have alleged that the increased insecurity in the country is partly due to the Taliban’s inability to control the situation within Afghanistan. This has led to a spillover of violence and criminal activities across the border, affecting Pakistan’s internal security.

Reports indicate that many refugees are being sent back against their will by Pakistani officials, creating a humanitarian crisis and straining the already volatile relationship between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
