Shiite News: Pak-Afghan border at Kharalachi in Kurram district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was opened after two weeks.
According to Deputy Commissioner (DC) Wasil Khattak, the border is now open for commercial traffic and for pedestrians between the two countries.
The Kharlachi border was closed on November 14 following an incident of firing between the two countries.
DC Wasil Khattak said that on November 19, the situation became tense due to the construction of a road by the Afghan authorities on the Pakistani land.
Assistant Commissioner (AC) Amir Nawaz said that with the cooperation of Pak-Afghan authorities, a jirga of tribal elders from both sides was held to resolve the issue, in which the negotiations were successful.
It should be noted that when the security authorities of Pakistan set up a fence on the Durand Line between Pakistan and Afghanistan, the lands owned by the Turi tribes were left within the boundaries of Afghanistan, due to which the conflict between the tribes on both sides intensified.
Two days ago, both sides resolved all the issues amicably during an important jirga consisting of security officials, tribal leaders.
