Indian media reported the first shipment of Indian wheat arrived in Afghanistan via the Wagah border.
According to a statement from the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the first 50 trucks carrying 2,500 tons of wheat were sent after a ceremony attended by Indian Foreign Ministry officials and the former Afghan ambassador.
India is expected to send 50,000 tons of wheat to Afghanistan via Pakistan’s Wagah Pass.
India was supposed to send aid to Afghanistan through Pakistan’s territory sometimes ago, but this was not possible due to Pakistan’s opposition. Pakistani media recently reported that New Delhi and Islamabad had agreed to send aid to Afghanistan.
However, with the recent political developments, the citizens of the country are struggling with extreme economic challenges, and most of the people are not able to provide food for the consumption. Aid agencies have stressed that if aid is not provided to the people of Afghanistan, disaster could strike the country.
