The US Treasury Department says sanctions against the Taliban will continue. The US Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, who has been invited to Congress, says they will continue to freeze Afghanistan’s nearly 9 billion in assets and that it is important that sanctions on the Taliban continue. He said it was the property of the Afghan people and should not fall into the hands of the Taliban.
The US Treasury Department also said that the delivery of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan was important and that it would be better to consider ways to deliver humanitarian aid to the country. Since the fall of the Taliban in Kabul, the United States has frozen nearly 9 billion in Afghan assets in foreign banks, leading to an economic crisis in Afghanistan.
