Pakistan gives more time for Indian aid to Kabul

Islamabad: The Pakistani government has granted India's request to extend the time period for overland transportation of humanitarian assistance from New Delhi to Afghanistan.

The time period expired on March 21 this year.

"As a manifestation of our sincere efforts towards addressing the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, it has been decided to grant two months' extension to facilitate completion of the transportation," the Pakistan Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Sunday night.

The Indian government had sought an extension in the period to complete the transportation process, it added.

Pakistan approved in November last year the transportation of 50,000 tonnes of wheat and lifesaving medicines from India to Afghanistan.

The transportation would be carried out from the Attari-Wagah border between India and Pakistan and then on to the Afghanistan border "on exceptional basis for humanitarian purposes", Islamabad had said.
