CHAGAI: Iranian authorities have assured Pakistani officials that travel activities would soon be resumed for people living along the border to meet their loved ones.
Assistant Commissioner Asmatullah Khan Achakzai called a meeting at Raahdari Gate in Taftan, a town near Pak-Iran border in Chagai district, and discussed certain border issues with Mohammad Qasim Peeri, the Marzban Grade-2 of Mir Javeh border town of Iran.
After offering gratitude to the Iranian authorities for reopening the mutual tax-free trade gate, the Taftan assistant commissioner urged his Iranian counterpart to reopen the Raahdari Gate which is used by the residents of border areas to meet their relatives after getting a 15-day special travel permit.
The Marzban Grade-2 said the travel gate would be reopened once they received a nod from Marzban Grade-1.
The two sides also discussed painting of border pillars between Taftan and Mir Javeh.
