Trade across LoC resumes in Poonch after two weeks

Trade across LoC resumes in Poonch after two weeks
Jammu, April 16 (IANS) Trade between India and Pakistan resumed at Poonch on Tuesday as 70 trucks carrying goods from the two sides crossed the Line of Control (LoC), the de facto border in Jammu and Kashmir. Trade was suspended for two weeks due to ceasefire violations by Pakistan on the LoC.

Earlier on Monday, cross-border travel by members of families living on the two sides of the LoC resumed after a week.

Officials at the Trade and Travel Facilitation Centre in the Poonch district said 35 trucks carrying potatoes, almonds, dry dates, pista and embroidery items came to Chakan Da Bagh from Rawalakote in Pakistan-administered part of the state, while 35 trucks carrying fruits, zeera and other items went from the Indian side to Rawalakote.

The cross-border trade was started as a confidence-building measure between India and Pakistan in October 2008.
