New York, Ta. 13
The United States has seized assets worth 500 million from the Central Bank of Afghanistan. This money will no longer go into the hands of the Taliban. New York will be safe with the Federal Reserve.
A US Treasury official has said that $500 million worth of Afghanistan’s central bank assets are with the New York Federal Reserve. The property is currently being cordoned off. This decision has been taken to prevent the country’s assets from falling into the hands of the Taliban.
The US has cut funding to Afghanistan with immediate effect. The funds of the Afghan government were kept under the supervision of the US Treasury Department for security reasons.
The Taliban will not have access to any assets of the Afghan government in the United States because the United States has banned the Taliban.
Earlier, the head of Afghanistan’s central bank, Ajmal Ahmadi, had tweeted that perhaps the assets of the Afghan government lying in the US will now be frozen to a great extent. Dollar shipments by the US will be halted and efforts are on to prevent it from falling into the hands of the Taliban. Because America does not want the wealth of Afghanistan to go into the hands of the Taliban in any way. The US made the announcement the day after Ahmadi’s tweet.
