The opening of the crossing would help accelerate economic activities in the bordering region with creating more opportunities for economic and trade ties between the two countries.
Pakistan Iran border
The drivers of the vehicles are being screened at the border and spray is being done at the vehicle entering Pakistan from Iran.
Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) on Saturday reported 709 people who have ventured across the border from Iran to Pakistan.
Pakistan has temporarily closed all the five entry points at the border with Iran — Taftan, Gwadar, Turbat, Panjgur and Washuk — as a precautionary measure to contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Pakistan-Iran border crossing at Taftan on Friday remained close for the sixth consecutive day after confirmation of two virus cases in the country, both of whom had travelled to Iran for pilgrimage.
Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) has made temporary arrangements for stay of the pilgrims stranded at the border.
