India exports wheat to Afghanistan2020-07-26 | Shipments
The first vessel, MV Negar, carrying 251 containers of wheat loaded from Deendayal Port for Afghanistan, arrived at India Ports Global’s Chabahar Port terminal in Iran in mid-April. The discharge of the laden boxes took a little over 6 hours, from where they proceeded to the landlocked Afghanistan. This is the first of many such vessels that will ply the route with wheat for Afghanistan, totalling a significant quantity. The Ambassador of Afghanistan to Iran also visited the terminal. India, Iran and Afghanistan believe that Chabahar will become the fulcrum of connectivity for Indian goods to reach Afghanistan and further north to Central Asian states, and for the landlocked Central Asia to find access to ocean through this port.
