India last week sent the 15th consignment of 2,500 MT (metric tonnes) of wheat to Taliban-ruled Afghanistan as humanitarian assistance via the Attari-Wagah border.

Balbir Mangat, Joint Commissioner, Customs on Saturday, said that a total of 36,000 MTs of wheat has been sent so far. Out of 50,000 MT which was promised by India, only 14,000 MT is left to be dispatched.

The aid is part of the commitment made by New Delhi to supply 50,000 MT of wheat for the people of Afghanistan.

Earlier, in a humanitarian effort to aid Afghanistan, India had sent the next shipment of 3000 metric tonnes of wheat to Afghanistan, said Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi in an official statement on last Saturday.

Taking to Twitter, Bagchi said, "India sent the next shipment of 3000 MTs of wheat today to Afghanistan. Our commitment to providing humanitarian assistance to the Afghan people remains steadfast."In partnership with World Food Programme, India has successfully completed the shipment of 33,500 MTs of wheat to Afghanistan, he had further added.In May, another consignment of 2,000 metric tons of wheat as humanitarian assistance from the government of India was dispatched for Afghanistan via the Attari-Wagah border.The Indian government has promised to provide 50,000 metric tons of wheat to Afghanistan, under which 10,000 metric tons of wheat have been sent already.

Moreover, in the wake of the recent tragic earthquake, India, as the first responder, supplied almost 28 tons of earthquake relief assistance in two relief flights.

These relief consignments were handed over to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), the UN World Food Programme (WFP), and the Afghan Red Crescent Society (ARCS).

Furthermore, India is in the process to ship more medical and wheat assistance to Afghanistan in coordination with the UN agencies on the ground.
