The government announces the closure of the border for two more weeks


A meeting of the National Coordination Committee, chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan, was held in which it was decided to close Pakistan’s western and eastern borders for another two weeks.

The meeting has decided to keep Pakistan’s western and eastern borders completely closed for another two weeks, said Moeed Yousuf, Special Assistant to PM Imran Khan for National Security Division.

Moeed Yusuf said it was also decided that the decision to suspend the movement of air passengers from abroad by April 4 was also endorsed. Given the situation, air traffic will gradually be opened, he said.

It is to be remembered that on March 13, 2020, a special meeting of the National Security Committee was held to deal with the Coronavirus, in which it was decided to close the western borders with Iran and Afghanistan for 14 days, which has now been extended. The Eastern Border with India and Kartarpur Corridor has also been closed amid coronavirus outbreak.
