Pakistan to start building fences along Afghan border in South-West Pakistan

Kabul – Pakistani military will soon starting building fences along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border area in the country's southwest Balochistan province, officials said.

A meeting was held between the officials of paramilitary troops frontier corps (FC) and tribal elders in Chaman area of Balochistan along the border, the FC officials said Wednesday.

The meeting was organized by FC officials, the district administration and tribal elders to discuss the matter of fencing at the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in Chaman.

The officials said that fences have already been built along the Pakistan- Afghanistan border in the country's northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and soon this project will be started in Balochistan.

Border fencing will be in the mutual interests of both countries, the officials said, adding that the business activities of the tribal people living near the border will not be affected as the tribal people are economically dependent on the trade and business done via border.

Pakistan earlier built fences at the country's northwestern border mainly to control the penetration of Afghan militants into Pakistani territory via porous border between the two countries.
