Kazakhstan Stops Flour Exports to Afghanistan

MAZAR-I-SHARIF - The Chamber of Commerce of northern Balkh province on Tuesday said Kazakhstan has stopped exporting flour to Afghanistan.
Pajhwok Afghan News obtained a copy of a letter, in which Kazakhstan government orders closure of its borders with Afghanistan and bans exports of some of products to Afghanistan.
Balkh Chamber of Commerce head, Arash Younisi, told Pajhwok that border closure and stoppage of imports from Kazakhstan was a matter of concern.
He said that concerns about coronavirus and banning of flour exports by Kazakhstan to Afghanistan had created problems for Afghans.
“Most of flour we need is imported from Kazakhstan, now they have stopped exporting the product which would not be without a risk for Afghanistan,” he said. (Pajhwok)
