Afghanistan has received $32 million in humanitarian cash assistance, the country’s central bank said on Friday.
Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB) said in a statement that “following a round of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, a shipment of humanitarian aid worth $32 million arrived in Afghanistan on Thursday. The cash aid was handed over to a commercial bank,” reports the Xinhua news agency.
While appreciating the humanitarian assistance from the international community, the Afghan central bank called for better relations with its partners in the financial and banking sectors.
“Da Afghanistan Bank welcomes the admission of foreign currency into the country through legal and principled means and calls on the international community to work together and cooperate with Afghanistan in other areas as well,” the statement said. .
The cash-strapped nation has received more than $980 million in cash since the Taliban took over Afghanistan last August, according to figures released by the bank.
