The federal cabinet has given India permission to transfer wheat aid to Afghanistan via Pakistan’s land border, where millions of people are facing famine as the severe winter approaches.
Islamabad would also send relief, including 50,000 metric tonnes of wheat, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) stated in a statement, matching the amount sent by India.
“We have approved the passage to this 50,000 tonnes of wheat that India wants to deliver to Afghanistan,” Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said following the cabinet meeting, which was chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan.

“We believe that the people of Afghanistan should be aided in whatever way possible,” he stated.
