Publication Date : 09-08-2012
The Afghan authorities yesterday restored Nato supplies after private companies paid a customs duty of 80 million rupees (US$848,356).
Nanhiali Faizi, a senior official of Afghan Customs, said the issue had been settled and now there was no restriction on the entry of Nato containers into Afghanistan.
Later, 20 containers were allowed to cross the Chaman border into Afghanistan.
Pakistani officials in Chaman confirmed that the Afghan authorities had restored Nato supplies.
Afghanistan had put restrictions on the entry of Nato containers on July 22 for non-payment of duty.
