India to use Chabahar port to send assistance to Afghanistan

An Indian ship began its journey to Iran’s Chabahar port, carrying a major consignment for Afghanistan of wheat and anti-malarial drug hydroxychlorquine, which is being used in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative comes a month after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a video- conference with South Asian leaders, including Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, leading to the integration of Afghanistan in India’s regional strategy for the containment of the disease through the SAARC COVID-19 Emergency Fund.
