India has come up with an MoU with UN’s World Food Program for transporting 50,000 metric tonnes of wheat from New Delhi to Afghanistan via Wagah Border.
India’s Ministry of External Affairs has also informed that in the coming weeks India would be supplying more batches of humanitarian assistance.
As per sources, Pakistan has allowed Afghan trucks and drivers to carry wheat from India to Afghanistan.
A list of 60 Afghan trucks has been exchanged, their drivers will carry the consignment to Afghanistan. Pakistan will soon issue visas to them.
The first wheat consignment from India will be transported to Afghanistan by February end. Last year, PM Imran Khan had also announced an Rs5 billion humanitarian aid for Afghanistan; now he has allowed transit of Indian wheat to the neighboring country.
These decisions were taken during the apex committee meeting on Afghanistan headed by PM Khan and attended by Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and federal ministers.
Imran Khan had directed Pak NSA Adviser Mooed Yusuf to hold talks with Afghanistan for the supply of humanitarian aid.
Later, the federal cabinet had also approved transit to shipment of 50,000 metric tons of wheat from India to Afghanistan.
Turkey has also sent a 45-wagon train carrying 921 tonnes of emergency goods as relief assistance for Afghanistan.
It will reach Afghanistan through Iran and Turkmenistan. Meanwhile, several other nations have been sending relief help for the Afghan people.
However, it remains a big challenge for the Western world to negotiate with the Taliban. After the US troops withdrawal, there have been many regular communications between the US and the Taliban but the future course of action remains hazy.
