The Taliban Says US Has Agreed to Hand Over Money to Afghanistan to Provide Humanitarian Aid


The disaster in Afghanistan under the Biden administration continues to worsen.

Afghanistan is “desperately poor” and “on the brink of an economic disaster,” NPR reports.

As a result, the U.S. has now agreed to provide humanitarian aid.

Although Biden has negotiated with the terrorist group, the U.S. fortunately refuses to give political recognition to the Taliban.

The Taliban previously gave refuge to al-Qaida before it carried out the 9/11 attacks. This prompted the 2001 U.S. invasion of Afghanistan.

Taliban has been ruling the region after Biden’s botched withdrawal of U.S. troops.

After reconnecting with the Taliban after the botched withdrawal, the U.S. confirms they discussed a “provision of robust humanitarian assistance” with the group.

The Taliban said the talks held in Doha, Qatar, “went well,” with Washington freeing up humanitarian aid to Afghanistan after agreeing not to link such assistance to formal recognition of the Taliban.

The United States made it clear that the talks were in no way a preamble to recognition of the Taliban, who swept into power Aug. 15 after the U.S.-allied government collapsed.

State Department spokesman Ned Price called the discussions “candid and professional,” with the U.S. side reiterating that the Taliban will be judged on their actions, not only their words.

“The U.S. delegation focused on security and terrorism concerns and safe passage for U.S. citizens, other foreign nationals and our Afghan partners, as well as on human rights, including the meaningful participation of women and girls in all aspects of Afghan society,” he said in a statement.

Taliban political spokesman Suhail Shaheen also told The Associated Press that the movement’s interim foreign minister assured the U.S. during the talks that the Taliban are committed to seeing that Afghan soil is not used by extremists to launch attacks against other countries.

On Saturday, however, the Taliban ruled out cooperation with Washington on containing the increasingly active Islamic State group in Afghanistan.
