Agencies: November 26: Pakistan Government on Saturday stopped the import of cotton and other agriculture commodities from India.
The decision was taken after Indian troops targeted a passenger bus and an ambulance near the Line of control (LOC) killing three Pakistani soldiers and 10 civilians on Wednesday.
The Government asked Department of Plant Protection (DPP) to halt import of cotton and other agriculture commodities including vegetables, via Wagah border and Karachi port.
However Sahabzada Imran Shami, director general of the DPP said that they have enough stock of stopped items.
“We have stopped import of tomatoes and other fresh vegetables in order to protect our farmers. We have enough tomato and other vegetables stocks, which we import from India only in case of shortages in the domestic market,” he said.
