India replaces China as Afghanistan’s Supplier


Afghanistan’s wheat supply, which has traditionally been undertaken by China via Pakistan, is now compromised by the transit of Indian goods via Iran.

The agreement that India, Iran and Afghanistan signed last May (2017) in Teheran has just entered into force. It provides for 500 million dollars worth of supplies of cereal per year. It is proof of US support to President Rohani and their common struggle against China, Iran’s former partner.
