The Taliban called on the United States to lift the blockade of more than 9 billion U.S. dollars of reserves held by the Afghan central bank abroad. The Afghan government is currently striving to control the deepening economic crisis.
“We believe it is essential that we maintain the sanctions against the Taliban, but also find ways to get legal humanitarian aid to the Afghan people. This is what we are doing,” Adejemo told the U.S. Senate. The Financial Commission said.

After the United States withdrew, the Taliban returned to power in Afghanistan in August. It has been nearly 20 years since the US-led forces ousted the Taliban after the attack on the United States on September 11, 2001.
