Indian trucks bring tomatoes to Pakistan after 60 years

LAHORE: Trucks carrying tomatoes crossed the frontier between India and Pakistan on Monday, the first goods vehicles to do so since the partition, officials said.
The neighbours agreed in August to allow each others’ trucks over their only land border as part of a slow-moving peace process launched in 2004.
Porters on foot previously took fruit, vegetables and other items across the heavily militarised Wagah border, a decades-long tradition that now appears threatened.

“Indian trucks entered our side of the border for the first time and brought around 1,200 crates of tomatoes which we unloaded here,” a Pakistani Customs official said.

The new procedure, adopted after demands by Indian and Pakistani traders, has “opened a new chapter of trade,” said Nasir Butt, an importer from the nearby city of Lahore.
But the porters have previously complained that they will lose their traditional livelihood.
India and Pakistan have launched a series of “confidence-building measures” aimed at improving relations since they began peace moves.
Among them was a bus service between their respective sides of Kashmir launched in 2005.

Lastwagen verkehren erstmals zwischen Indien und Pakistan

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on October 1, 2007

Lahore – Erstmals seit der blutigen Teilung von Britisch-Indien vor 60 Jahren haben am Montag Lastwagen mit Tomaten die Grenze zwischen Indien und Pakistan überquert. Die beiden miteinander verfeindeten Atommächte hatten sich im August auf den grenzüberschreitenden Lastwagenverkehr am einzigen Grenzübergang geeinigt. Bislang mussten Träger die Waren zu Fuß über den militärisch stark gesicherten Grenzposten Wagah bringen.
