NEW DELHI: Pakistan finally agreed in letting India transport 50,000 metric tonnes of wheat and life-saving drugs as humanitarian assistance for the people of Afghanistan on Afghan trucks.
India on Thursday said that through discussions with Pakistan we are going to finalize the transport of goods to Afghanistan through Pakistan, at the same time Pakistan rejected the proposal.
However, Foreign Office said in a statement on Friday that the decision to send wheat and life-saving drugs to Afghanistan was formally conveyed to India.
Pakistan has previously insisted on sending wheat and medicines to Afghanistan are transported from the Wagah border point, while India favoured using its own transport. India wanted to ensure the products reach the beneficiaries without an intermediate.
