According to a letter sent by the ministry of foreign affairs to the Gilgit-Baltistan government, the Chinese Embassy in Pakistan has asked the government of Pakistan to open the border from the Pakistan side only with strict implementation of the standard operating procedures against coronavirus.

DC Fiaz Ahmed said the resumption of the trade from both sides could resume if the Covid-19 situation improved. He said a meeting would be held with the authorities in the Xinjiang province at the Khunjerab top to finalize modalities for opening the border.

He said Chinese containers loaded with goods would be dropped at the pass on the Pakistan side, which would then be hooked to the Sost dry through cranes. He said there would be no person to person contact during the handling of the goods as the job would be done by machines.

Under the protocol agreement signed between the two countries, trade and travel activities through Khunjerab pass continue from April to December.

However, the Covid-19 emergency has forced its closure since November 2019.
