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.”
