India to use Chabahar port to provide humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan

As part of the humanitarian aid being provided by India, an Indian ship has begun its journey to Iran’s Chabahar port carrying a major consignment for Afghanistan of wheat and anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine.

The Chabahar port is being used for the very first time for humanitarian purpose that is sending a strong message across the globe.

Hydroxychloroquine is a major drug being used in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Taking to the social media, the Embassy of India in Kabul said, “251 containers carrying the first consignment of 5,022 MT of wheat out of a total gift of 75,000 MT from India to Afghanistan set sail from the Kandla Port to the Chabahar Port today [on Sunday]. The remaining consignments will follow in the weeks ahead. India is gifting 5,00,000 tablets of HydroxyChloroquine to Afghanistan for health professionals and COVID-19 positive cases.”
