Kabul (BNA) The commerce and Industries chamber of Afghanistan says Iran has imposed restrictions on export of 50 items of commercial goods to Afghanistan.
Mr. Khan Jan Alokuzai the deputy president of Afghan Chamber of Commerce told BNA that we import the major part of foodstuff and fuel from Iran annually and that country has ceased the exportation of 50 items of commercial goods which include flour, oil, sugar, petroleum and raw materials for the factories that caused concern of both the merchants and consumers of those goods.
He said that the move would have negative impact on business between the two countries.
Waheedullah Ghazikhail the spokesperson of ministry of commerce says since most of the required goods of the country are imported from Middle Asian countries, therefore, stopping the exportation of the goods by Iran will not create any problem in Afghan markets.
