Taliban Receives Fourth Aid Package Worth $40 Million in Cash
In a newsletter, the Central Bank of Afghanistan under Taliban control said Wednesday it had received another cash package of 40 million dollars from the international community which was deposited in a commercial bank.
Over the past ten days, this is the fourth package of 40 million dollars that reaches Kabul. Other packages worth 40 million dollars also arrived in Kabul on the 11th, 12th and 19th of this month.
According to the newsletter, the Central Bank of Afghanistan has received at least 11 packages worth 40 million dollars so far.
Meanwhile, the Taliban regime had earlier announced it received packages worth 32 million dollars many times.
In the meantime, the Taliban rulers have declared that they have received more than one billion and 600 million dollars in humanitarian aid so far over the past year since they retook power.
The Taliban also added that they have also received other humanitarian aid from different countries during the past year.
The Taliban have also stated that they have received help from Pakistan, Iran, Russia, China, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Indonesia, Malaysia and a number of other countries.
Meanwhile, there are no accurate figures for the cash aid that have been given to Afghanistan after the Taliban swept into power in late August, and it is also not clear how this money will be used.
