The Taliban have stopped all imports and exports from India through transit routes of Pakistan as it gained control over Afghanistan, the Federation of Indian Export Organisation (FIEO) said on Thursday.

“We keep a close watch on developments in Afghanistan. Imports from there come through the transit route of Pakistan. As of now, Taliban has stopped the movement of cargo to Pakistan, so virtually imports have been stopped,” news agency ANI reported quoting Ajay Sahai, FIEO’s Director-General.

According to the organization, the prices of dry fruits in India might increase in the near future as the country imports about 85% of these commodities from Afghanistan.
