Khunjerab Pass Corridor re-opened for all kinds of traffic today


Home Secretary Gilgit-Baltistan, Rana Muhammad Saleem Afzal said that Khunjerab Pass Corridor between Pakistan and China is being re-opened for all kinds of traffic today, April 3, after almost three years.

According to the details, Khunjerab Pass Corridor, the major trade route between the two countries, was closed in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020. The closure of the Khunjerab border for three years caused financial issues for the local business community and a large number of workers was left jobless.
