Import of low quality oil into Afghanistan banned: Ministry of Commerce

fuelAfghan Ministry of Commerce and Industries announced Wednesday that import of low quality oil and semi-refined oil into Afghanistan has been banned by the Council of Ministers.

Traders who have purchased low quality oil are given three months to import and finish their oil. The offenders would face legal punishment, if they imported low quality oil after three months.

According to Commerce and Industries Ministry’s spokesperson Musafir Quqandi, the Council of Ministers has banned import of sub-standard oil in order to reduce pollution in the country.

“In order to protect our environment and prevent air pollution, only good oil quality, meaning better than A 92 petrol and L02-62 diesel, will be imported into Afghanistan,” said Quqandi.
