KABUL (Reuters) -- Senior Taliban officials appealed on Saturday for international help to combat a deepening economic crisis that has fuelled fears of another refugee exodus from Afghanistan.
The movement’s deputy Foreign Minister, Sher Muhammad Abbas Stanikzai, said it was the responsibility of countries like the United States, which have blocked billions of dollars of central bank reserves, to help Afghanistan recover after decades of war. “The impact of the frozen funds is on the common people and not Taliban authorities,” he told a conference.
