Diplomatic sources have told media that talks between Pakistan and India over the supply of wheat and medicines through Pakistan to Afghanistan have been finalized and the delivery will start on February 22, 2022.

Based on the agreement, India will send 50,000 tonnes of wheat to the Afghan people.

Using Indian trucks for the delivery was a matter of conflict between Pakistan and India that took three months of discussion.

India has finally handed over to Pakistan with a list of 60 Afghan trucks and drivers that will be allowed to transport the wheat to Afghanistan.

The wheat and medicines will be transported through Torkham crossing point to eastern Jalalabad city and will then be handed over to the World Food Program.

India inked a distribution agreement of the wheat with the WFP on Saturday, February 12, 2022, in the Italian capital Rome.

Earlier, India had handed over to Afghanistan 500,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
