Pakistan closes Friendship Gate with Afghanistan: Sources

*QUETTA- Yet another low has been witnessed between Pakistan and Afghanistan after the border clash between the two forces.*

Pakistan has closed its Friendship Gate with Afghanistan in Chaman following a clash between security forces of both the countries.

Clash erupted over fencing along the bordering town of Sakan Kanarr.

The Pakistani border guards were busy in fencing when Afghan security forces tried to stop them, which resulted in an exchange of harsh words. Soon after, the dispute escalated into a battle as both forces exchanged fire. No casualties were reported.

Pakistan started fencing along the 2,400 kilometres Afghan border in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan to prevent terrorists and smugglers from entering the country.

Numerous rounds of negotiations between officials of both the countries failed to yield any positive result as Afghanistan opposes Pakistan’s move of fencing its border.
