Chaman. First time in history, a flag hoisting ceremony was conducted at the newly constructed gates on the Pak-Afghan border by the FC Baluchistan and Chaman scouts.

The border crossing between Pakistan and Afghanistan at Chaman, shut for the past 14 days, is set to reopen  after successful negotiations between border guards from both sides.

The Bab-e-Dosti (Friendship) Gate in Chaman, one of the major border crossings between Pakistan and Afghanistan in Balochistan, had been closed by Pakistani authorities on August 17 after a large number of Afghans pelted the crossing with stones and desecrated the Pakistani flag while raising anti-Pakistan slogans.
