Mullah Hasan Akhund, Afghanistan’s acting prime minister, called for world nations to recognise the country’s Taliban administration on Wednesday, saying that all prerequisites had been met at a news conference in Kabul.

The news: Foreign governments have been hesitant to recognise the Taliban administration, which assumed power in August, while Western nations, led by the US, have frozen billions of dollars in Afghan banking assets and cut off development money, which was previously the lifeblood of the Afghan economy.

  • At a news conference attended by UN officials, Akhund and other Taliban administration officials called for an easing of restrictions on money entering the country, blaming the government’s worsening economic problems on the freezing of finances.

What’s going on: The international world has increased humanitarian aid, which is intended to meet immediate needs while mostly avoiding official channels. However, millions more people have fallen into poverty as the country suffers a cash constraint and a failing economy throughout the severe winter.

What they’re saying: Deborah Lyons, the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Afghanistan, spoke at the event, noting that Afghanistan’s economic situation was a significant challenge that needed to be handled by all countries.

  • “The United Nations is striving to revitalise Afghanistan’s economy and address the country’s underlying economic difficulties,” she said.
  • The Taliban regime is pursuing economic contacts with the world community, according to Afghanistan’s acting foreign minister, Amir Khan Muttaqi.
  • “Humanitarian help is a short-term fix for economic difficulties; nevertheless, long-term solutions require the implementation of infrastructure projects,” he stated.
