Kabul (BNA) Commerce, economy and transit are the bases for welfare and tranquility of countries, should be kept safe from conspiracies and political rivalries.
BNA financial affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Civil Aviation Department of Afghanistan says that the closure of Pakistan airspace to transit   flights of Afghanistan during the last four and half months, in addition caused serious problems for the people of our country, have caused 25 m dollars for this department.
Pakistan late last year (Afghan calendar) after India air forces in retaliation of 40 Indian troops were killed by Jaish Mohammad in Bala Koot area Pakistani Kashmir, targeted the hideout of the group, closed all its eastern areas to all airlines flights among them Afghan airlines.
This take place in time, most of Afghan airline flights carried out to India and two Indian aviation companies had regular flights to Afghanistan. Because of Pakistan decision the flights of the two Indian aviation companies to Afghanistan stopped, and Afghan aviation companies had to choose in alternative way cost allot and increase the time of flight from two hours in five hours.
Due to high cultural and political ties between Afghanistan and India, Afghan citizens go to India for various purposes, therefore the closure of Pakistan airspace have caused many problems for our people.
On the other hand due to the closure of Pakistani airspace to airlines flights, many aviation companies used Afghan airspace for their flights had to change the way of their flight which caused the decrease of incomes of Afghan national aviation department.
The authorities of Afghan Civil Aviation Department say that due to the closure of Pakistan airspace, the department has sustained 27m dollars.
Pakistan has always used trade and transit issues as a weapon against Afghanistan and used trade and transit as a political means. Increasing pressure on Afghanistan, Pakistan wants to make Afghanistan to follow it on commerce and transit issues.
Pakistan fears from warm and close relation between India and Afghanistan and not hidden its fear and repeatedly asked for reduction of relation between Kabul and New Delhi as prerequisite for its cooperation with Afghanistan.
Many believe that the continuation of Pakistan’s wrong policies will make the countries of the region to coordinate their activities against Pakistan.  This will lead to further isolation of Pakistan and defeat of that country in commercial rivalries in the region.
Therefore it would be better for Pakistan to have a reasonable definition from commerce and politics and not ties the two issues in to each other.
