A special “humanitarian train” carrying 750 tonnes of aid under the coordination of the Turkish government left for Afghanistan from Ankara yesterday.

The train, with the help of 11 humanitarian organizations coordinated by the State Disaster and Emergency Management Service (AFAD), is already on its way, Turkish Transport and Infrastructure Minister Adil Karaismailoglu said.

“We have two trains with 47 wagons carrying approximately 750 tons of charity goods,” Karaismailoglu said, adding that the train will reach Afghanistan after first passing through Iran and Turkmenistan. He will cover 4,168 km in 16 days.

For his part, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu stressed that 12.9 million children in Afghanistan need help due to extreme weather conditions.

UN chief Antonio Guterres has warned that millions of Afghans are on the brink of death, calling on the international community to release Afghanistan’s frozen assets , which will revive the banking system in the country.
