Cross-LoC trade link reopens after two weeks

The cross-Line of Control trade between India and Pakistan reopened along the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road after remaining suspended for two weeks.



Srinagar: The cross-Line of Control trade
between India and Pakistan reopened on Tuesday along the
Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road after remaining suspended for two
weeks.

While 66 truck loads of goods were exported from this
side to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), 50 trucks loaded with
goods from other side reached Salamabad Trade Facilitation
Centre, officials said here.
Red chillies comprised 80 per cent of the exports while
oranges formed 70 per cent of the imported goods, they said.

The trade, which is held every Tuesday and Wednesday of
the week along the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road, was suspended
two weeks earlier following landslides at Aman Setu (Peace
Bridge), near the Kaman Post on LoC.
The bridge was repaired by the Army last week thus
enabling resumption of the trade, sources said.

The cross-LoC trade, billed as one the biggest confidence
building measures between India and Pakistan, was started in
October 2008.
