4 After the opening of the trade gates, some Iranian trailers loaded with food items and liquefied petroleum gas tankers arrived in Pakistan, according to the reports.

5 The decision regarding resumption of trade between the two countries was taken by the National Command and Operations Center of Pakistan in a recent meeting held in federal capital Islamabad, according to government officials.

6 Earlier in a telephone conversation last month, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani emphasized the necessity for the resumption of cross-border trade, reopening of the border markets, and strengthening the trade ties in conformity with the health regulations.

7 “The resumption of commodities exchange between the two countries will greatly help Pakistan’s economy, which has encountered many problems due to the coronavirus,” the prime minister said.
