ISLAMABAD – Although Pakistan has yet to give India the status of most favorite nation, however, an agreement to purchase the electricity from not-so-favorite-nation was achieved, announced the federal minister of commerce Khurram Dastagir.
Dastagir told the media on Tuesday that an agreement to purchase the electricity from India has been reached. But he also mentioned that further trade talks with India would resume following their general elections.
According to Dastagir several issues with India could be resolved by opening trade between the two countries. He added that trade routes would not be closed even if there was an altercation at the border.
According to the previous reports published by PakistanTribe, Pakistan had agreed to even abolish the negative list of 1,209 items which were previously banned to be imported from India. According to one source, the trade with India will be convened on 24/7 basis via Wagah Border. In the second phase of the trade agreement, Pakistan will be granting India the access to Central Asian states and Afghanistan via the northern transit routes including Silk Route.
