Common quandary: Refugees, trade discussed at Pak-Afghan meeting

The people of K-P and Afghanistan, besides having strong linguistic, cultural, religious and trade links, also enjoy close familial relations.

The Pakistani provincial government will provide the best possible facilities to Afghan refugees and hopes the Afghan government will, in turn, help provide them education at refugee camps. 

This was said by Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister Pervez Khattak during a meeting with Afghan Consul General Syed Muhammad Ibrahimkhel on Saturday. 

Ibrahimkhel thanked the provincial government for facilitating the stay of millions of refugees despite internal problems and said Afghan refugees too were benefitting from good governance in the province. 

“The people of K-P and Afghanistan, besides having strong linguistic, cultural, religious and trade links, also enjoy close familial relations,” said Khattak. He added these ties need to be further strengthened through mutual cooperation.
 
Khattak hoped the Afghan government would help solve problems of the traders’ community and mitigate their grievances on extra taxation at the Pak-Afghan border.
