Afghanistan no longer threatened by Pakistan blocking trade routes

The President of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani, said the enemies will no longer threat Afghanistan by blocking trade routes as the country has alternative routes to rely on. These remarks were made during a gathering in the provincial capital of Balkh province, Mazar-e-Sharif, which has historically been a trade hub owed to its strategic location on the major Silk Road routes. President Ghani highlighted the geographic importance of Afghanistan and said the country is an inseparable part of the Central Asia. This comes as Pakistan has several times shut down its borders on Afghanistan following a political rift between Islamabad and Kabul. The recent border closures by Pakistan has inflicted millions of dollars of losses onto the Afghan economy. The routes were opened last week after three weeks of closure.
