CHAGAI: A new border crossing with Iran was opened in the Raajay area of Chagai district on Wednesday.
Deputy Commissioner Mansoor Ahmed Baloch, accompanied by officials of Frontier Corps, the local administration and tribal elders, inaugurated the new entry point.
Talking to Dawn, Mr Baloch said the new facility would facilitate people from both sides of the border to travel and carry out trade activities. He said a gate had been recently installed at the border crossing. “This is a historic moment for the people living on both sides of the border as this new border crossing will create job opportunities and remove hurdles being faced by the local people,” the deputy commissioner said.
He said the development was made possible after Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani’s recent visit to Iran where opening of new border crossings had been promised.
Mr Sanjrani’s father Asif Khan Sanjrani also attended the inaugural ceremony.
