Border Commissar Col. Mohammad Sharif Ghazai said the crossing was reopened at around 7:00am for transit trade and people.

Police Chief Gen. Tadin Khan said that the Spinboldak-Chaman crossing was reopened in line with the wishes and aspirations of the people of both sides adding that people resolve showed that they could not be separated.

Tadin Khan hailed efforts of Foreign Minister Hanif Atmar for the permanent reopening of the crossing.
