PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Closed three years ago, a major Pakistaninfo-icon-Afghanistaninfo-icon trade route will be reopened next month, says a senior military commander.  

The Ghulam Khan trade route in North Waziristan Agency was shut in 2014 when a major military offensive against insurgents was launched in the region.

The reopening of the border check-post would create jobs for area residents, hoped General Officer Commanding (GOC) Maj. Gen. Azhar Iqbal Abbasi.

Speaking to Utmanzai Wazir tribe elders on Sunday, Abbasi said work on several reconstructioninfo-icon and development projects was underway in the region.

He promised restoring peace in the area to ensure economic progress. People had immensely suffered due to militancy and lawlessness, the commander added.
