Afghanistan the Fourth Major Importer of Iranian Products

According to Iran’s customs officials, Afghanistan purchased items worth USD 1,115,000,000 from Iran in the last five months, making Afghanistan the fourth largest importer of Iranian products behind Iraq (USD 2,416,000,000), China (2,780,000,000) and United Arab Emirates (USD 1,592,000,000).

Due to Afghanistan’s dependence on goods from Iran and Pakistan, these neighboring countries have repeatedly blocked the import of basic goods to Afghanistan over political problems.

India, with a purchase of USD 863,000,000 worth Iranian goods, is the fifth importer of Iranian goods.

The report also declared the top exporters to Iran.

United Arab Emirates                     USD 4,431,000,000

China                                                     USD 2,936,000,000

Turkey                                                  USD 2,178,000,000

South Korea                                       USD 1,886,000,000

Switzerland                                        USD 1,191,000,000

Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries recently announced that the United States of America have urged Afghan traders to end financial transactions with 24 Iranian private companies and a number of Iranian banks.
