Pak eases restrictions on US military vehicles transiting to Afghanistan
Islamabad, Jan 2 (ANI): Pakistan has allowed the US cargo including military vehicles for transit to Afghanistan via Torkham and Chaman.
Pakistan's Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) issued a Customs General Order (CGO) to ensure transit of particular US cargo, which is free of hazardous waste material.
According to the CGO, in case the cargo is intended for transit from Afghanistan, a US declaration of ownership shall be accepted in lieu of the original invoice, the Nation reports.
Also, the US cargo to be allowed entry for transit under CGO at Torkham and Chaman should comprise military vehicles and non-containerised equipment and be certified as free of hazardous waste material, including depleted uranium ammunition, as defined in the Basel Convention.
According to FBR's list of prohibited US cargo, weapons are not permissible for transit to Afghanistan, the paper said. (ANI)
