At a critical time when the doors of international trade are almost shut on Afghanistan, and as a humanitarian catastrophe looms large, China reopens trade with Afghanistan.

This month, more than 45 metric tons of pine nuts were sold by the war-ravaged country at the 4th China International Import Expo.

The Expo ran from November 5 to November 10 in Shanghai. The pine nuts fetched an estimated 10 million yuan ($1.56 million) for Afghanistan.

This is the first time that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has exported goods to China under the new Taliban-led government.
