In an early Friday tweet, Imran said: “Despite global pandemic of COVID 19, we remain committed to supporting our Afghan brothers & sisters.” The premier added that he had given instructions to open the border between Chaman and Spin Boldak, Kandahar. He also told authorities to “let trucks crossover into Afghanistan”.
“In time of crisis, we remain steadfast with Afghanistan,” he asserted.
PM Imran’s decision comes at a time when countries across the globe have close down borders and restricted air travel to contain the deadly pneumonia-like virus that has caused over 9,000 deaths and infected over 200,000. Meanwhile, John Hopkins data said Afghanistan has 22 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and one death. According to International Organisation of Migration, over 100,000 Afghans were deported or returned voluntarily from Iran since the outbreak of the virus in the country.
