India Sends More Wheat to  Afghanistan Via Chabahar

The Indian government is sending another consignment of 20,000 tons of wheat to Afghanistan amid a humanitarian crisis in the county.
This entails using Iran’s Chabahar Port to relieve the severe food scarcity currently facing many Afghans, Afghanistan’s Khama Press news agency reported.
It builds on the success of a previous wheat assistance delivery of 40,000 tons through Pakistan’s land border.
The first shipment of 2,500 tons of the 20,000 tons of wheat has already left the port and is scheduled to arrive this week in the province of Herat via Iran.
With Iran’s Chabahar Port acting as a central transit point, this route not only avoids the difficulties posed by the land border but also emphasizes the importance of regional collaboration.
India is promoting the stability and prosperity of Afghanistan by widening the channels for aid distribution.
Recently, the Indian Foreign Affairs Ministry said in a statement that the current issues involving the Afghanistan Embassy in New Delhi are an internal matter from India’s point of view. 
The diplomatic mission still serves under the former Afghan government’s ambassador, Farid Mamondzai. However, the de facto government in Kabul recently named a new ambassador, which faced opposition from the diplomats and staff of the embassy.
According to media sources, Qadir Shah was appointed by the Taliban leadership to head the embassy in New Delhi.
