Taliban demands lifting of sanctions from the bank
Afghanistan’s Acting Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaki led the Taliban-US talks in Doha. In the meeting, representatives of the Taliban have demanded the US to lift the ban on the reserves of Afghanistan’s central bank. America and other countries are very concerned about the internal situation in Afghanistan. They want to help the Taliban without recognizing it.
It is believed that pressure has been put on the Taliban by the American delegation to reform. At the same time, the Taliban have expressed hope for American help. Let us tell you that the US has seized assets worth about $ 9.5 billion or more than Rs 706 billion in the central bank of Afghanistan. At the same time, the US has stopped the supply of cash to the country as part of an attempt to prevent the Taliban-led government from accessing the country’s funds.
