Foreign aids will be decreased to Afghanistan: UN

The United Nations Secretary- General Antonio Guterres, in his recent statement, has said that the humanitarian assistance will be decreased to Afghanistan, as the reduction of aids and high level of unemployment and economic crisis in the country will affect the Afghan people. In response to the UN’s statement, the Ministry of Finance of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan said that the statement was baseless and inequitable comparing to the recent developments in the country. The ministry added, after the resumption of power by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA), lots of positive changes have been made in the country’s economic situation and for the first time the government employees’ salaries are paid without the financial co operation of the foreign countries. “Implementation of various development and economic projects, increasing of the country’s exports and imports, provision of necessary facilities for traders and investors, paying the government employees from the domestic revenues are the issues that have entered the country’s economy towards improvement and prosperity,” the ministry said. The ministry asks the United Nations to make efforts to leave imposed sanctions from the banking system of Afghanistan and unfreeze the country’s foreign assets. Afghan economic experts say: “Unfreezing of the country’s foreign assets, lifting of imposed sanctions from the banking system as well as lifting of political pressures will solve the economic crisis of Afghanistan.” According to them, Afghan people will be affected by the reduction and complete stopping of foreign aids, as the development of the country’s labor market depends on international assistance. While, the country’s health system has been affected due to recent developments, which have caused to foreign health supplies providers to stop their operations in the country, luckily the necessary health services are provided for the Afghan people. Meanwhile, Afghans call on the international community, other relevant human rights organs and aid agencies to continue their humanitarian assistance without consideration of any political issues to the people of Afghanistan. Some deserved families say: “Reduction and complete cutting of the foreign aid to Afghanistan will have negative impacts on the economic situation of people, as they had passed their live by the assistance they received in the past two years and asking for the continuation of aids.” On the other hand, officials of the World Food Program (WFP) have said that due to the lack of budget levels of humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan have decreased considerably. Spokesman of the World Food Program (WFP) in Afghanistan Wahedullah Amani says: “The distribution processes of foreign humanitarian aids didn’t stop in any part of the country, but with a considerable reduction are being distributed to deserved families across the country.” Shukria Kohistani
