ISLAMABAD: Pakistan will temporary open border crossings at Torkham and Chaman for two days to allow stranded Afghan nationals to return to their country, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) said on Monday.

A MoFA press release said the government decided to open the border crossings on today (Tuesday) and tomorrow (Wednesday), "in order to provide an opportunity to those nationals of Afghanistan who had come to Pakistan on valid visas and wish to return to their country". Crossing points will also allow Pakistanis visiting Afghanistan on valid visas to return to the country, the Foreign Office said.

"All concerned at the two crossing points have also been informed," the statement added. Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz also conveyed the decision to Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan Omar Zakhilwal over the phone.
