The Taliban has praised India's decision to send 1.6 tonnes of lifesaving medications to Afghanistan at a time when Pakistan continues to obstruct the shipment of wheat provided by the Indian side via the Wagah land border crossing.

A special charter flight carrying 104 persons, most of them included Afghan Sikhs and Hindus, flew from Kabul to New Delhi. The same flight returned back with medications from New Delhi, for the Indira Gandhi Institute of Child Health in Kabul. The children's hospital in the Afghan capital is dealing with an increasing number of malnourished children.
