Pakistan will reopen its borders with Afghanistan, said a government spokesperson on Monday, days after Islamabad closed the Torkham and Chaman borders after a recent surge in terrorist attacks. “The borders at Chaman and Torkham will be reopened on March 7-8”, Foreign Office spokesperson NafeesZakaria said in a statement. “Pakistani and Afghan citizens will be allowed to travel on legal travel documents”. In the wake of bloody suicide bombings last month, Pakistan shut down border crossings – halting trade supplies to the neighbouring landlocked country and stopping movement of the people across the border – increasing tensions between the two nations.
