    For the first time since 2007, India and Pakistan are set to open a historic border crossing for commercial traffic passing through the two nations.

    The "integrated check post," as it is known, close to Wagah, the only road crossing between the antagonistic neighbours, is the first of 13 border posts set to open following years of negotiations between the two sides.

    The opening of the crossing at Attari could see the number of trucks entering Pakistan increase from 150 to 800 a day, greatly boosting business on both sides of the border.
