Pakistan is now allowing India to transport tons of wheat to Afghans suffering from worsening food shortages, confirmed by two foreign ministry officials.

From February 21, hundreds of lorries from Afghanistan will be permitted to receive wheat from India across Pakistan's Wagha border near Lahore, as part of an agreement with New Delhi.
