ISLAMABAD- The Ministry of Commerce says there is no proposal under consideration to allow transit facility to India for export of wheat to Afghanistan through Wagah border.

In a press release, the ministry says it has neither received any request from Indian side to allow Indian exports, including wheat, in transit to

Afghanistan through border nor is there any proposal to allow such transit facility to India being considered in the Ministry of Commerce.

The ministry said reports in various sections of the national press that India is seeking permission to export large quantities of wheat to

Afghanistan are not based on facts.

It also pointed out that under the Afghanistan-Pakistan Transit Trade Agreement (APTMA), exports from India, including wheat are not allowed in transit to Afghanistan through Wagha border.
