Patient Najibullah said: “Pakistan should be put under pressure to allow the patient. Two to three people accompany the patient. Pakistan is not treating us well.”

“According to the agreement between Afghanistan and Pakistan, 100 to 150 people should be allowed to pass through the gate,” said Abdul Malik Samsor, a patient.

On the occasion, the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Investment said the closure of the gates had affected the country.

The Taliban closed the gates after Pakistan refused to let Afghan patients through, according to Tolo News Network. Meanwhile, Dawn reported that the Afghan Taliban had closed the door to Pakistan, accusing Islamabad of breaking promises.

Even Dawn said the Taliban’s commissioner in Torkham Maulavi Mohammad Siddique tweeted that “Pakistan has not kept its promises and therefore the portal has been closed at the direction of (our) leadership”.

He advised Afghans to avoid the border crossing in eastern Nangarhar province. (Arnie)
