Fertiliser for Afghanistan reaches Gwadar port

May 30, 2020 - 08:36

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): A ship carrying 16,400 tonnes of fertiliser for Afghanistaninfo-icon has arrived at the Gwadar Port in Pakistaninfo-icon’s southeastern Balochistan province.

The urea fertiliser was brought from Australia under the Pak-Afghan Transit Trade Agreement, officials said after the ship’s arrival on Friday.

Afghan Ambassador Atif Mashal, meanwhile, hoped Pakistan's decision to allow Afghan traders to use the Gwadar port would boost bilateral trade and transit ties between the neighbours.

Gwadar Port Authority Chairman Naseer Ahmed Kashani said the facility had been opened for Afghan transit trade with the arrival of the ship.

He told Dawn another ship loaded with 16,000 tonnes of urea and 500,000 tonnes of sugar and wheat would reach the port next month. The urea consignment would be sent to Afghanistan by road.

Mashal tweeted: "This will certainly have a positive impact on Afghanistan-Pak trade and transit ties. We must extend support to each other for revival of commerce and connectivity in Central and South Asia that will benefit the region."
