Indian wheat: Kabul welcomes Pak decision

54

Afghanistan welcomed on Saturday Islamabad’s decision to allow the use of Afghan trucks for transporting Indian wheat to the war-torn country after crossing into Pakistan via Wagah border in Punjab and travelling to Torkham in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which borders the Afghan province of Nangarhar.

Pakistan’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Mansoor Ahmad Khan informed Afghan Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi of the decision during a meeting with him on Saturday. The decision was shared with the Indian side.

Evidently, Pakistan’s decision regarding modalities excluded the possibility of the transportation of wheat through Indian trucks, according to the sources.

However, a formal announcement was only made earlier this month, after Prime Minister Imran accepted the request for wheat transportation in consultation with the federal cabinet.
