Surging COVID-19 cases: Pakistan closes Torkham crossing

By: The Kabul Times

KABUL: Pakistan’s Minister of Interior Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad said on Tuesday that the Torkham crossing would be closed with immediate effect to all traffic due to COVID-19.

“On the advice of the NCOC (National Command Operation Center) all types of immigration departure and arrival will be closed from today,” the minister announced in a tweet yesterday.

The Torkham Immigration Centre on the Afghanistan-Pakistan crossing would remain closed until new guidelines were provided by the NCOC, the minister added.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Tribune reported that the interior minister also addressed a press conference this week where he discussed the situation developing in Afghanistan amid the withdrawal of US military forces.
