Pakistan, Afghanistan Authorities Agree To Start Peshawar-Jalalabad Bus Service

Pakistan and Afghan authorities have agreed to initiate the bus service between Peshawar's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province and Jalalabad's Nangarhar province, reported The Express Tribune. The decision to start the service was taken after a meeting of the Afghanistan International Co-ordination Cell. The aim of this bus service is to resolve the problems between the two countries.

The relationship between the two countries has been put on hold after the Taliban took over control of Afghanistan in August 2021. The swift takeover by the Taliban came after the United States withdrew its remaining troops from Afghanistan as outlined in a 2020 peace agreement with the group. Hence, to revive the relationship between the two countries this bus service has been initiated.
