The U.S. government says it will provide an additional $ 144 million (3 123 million) in emergency aid in response to the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. The National Security Council has announced that it will provide nearly $ 474 million this year in US humanitarian aid to Afghanistan and to Afghan refugees in the region.
The Security Council requested that in addition to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s ongoing inspections in Iran, that it monitor Iran’s compliance with “the steps required by the IAEA Board”.
Warning of hunger crisis
The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) on Monday warned of a dramatically worsening hunger crisis. According to a WFP report in November, more than half of the country’s population will not have enough to eat.
Drought in the country, decline in public services, severe economic crisis and rising food prices are the reasons for this increase.
The US-led operation in Afghanistan ended almost two months ago with the expulsion of the last soldiers. The Taliban regained control of Afghanistan in mid-August. Since then, most of the international aid and development funds have been frozen, and the Afghan central bank’s reserves abroad have been frozen.
