India decides to send 20,000 metric tons of wheat to Afghanistan: Reports 

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 13 Jun 2023, 02:23 pm

The Indian government has decided to send  20,000 metric tons of wheat to Afghanistan as the country continues to face a humanitarian crisis, media reports said.

This new project entails using Iran’s Chabahar port to carry 20,000 tons of wheat to Afghanistan. This generous deed intends to relieve the severe food scarcity that many Afghans are currently experiencing, reports Khaama Press.

It builds on the success of a previous wheat assistance delivery of 40,000 tons through Pakistan’s land border, the news agency reported.

Afghanistan is currently ruled by the Taliban.

The group snatched power in the war-ravaged country in 2021.
