Feb 2, 2022: Pakistan on Wednesday sent another consignment of relief supplies to Afghanistan in an effort to stem the growing humanitarian crisis in the war-torn country.
The Pak-Afghan Cooperation Forum (PACF) handed over 13 trucks of relief goods to Afghan authorities at Torkham border. The relief supplies included 353 tons of winter and hygiene packs and food items. Pakistan was represented by Additional Assistant Commissioner Ashrafuddin and Country Coordinator Malteser International Pakistan Fayyaz Hussain Shah while DG NGO Management Qari Ehsanullah Jalili, Director Ministry of Economy Syed Ahmad Ibrahimi and other officials represented Afghanistan.
Afghanistan is currently facing a major economic crisis because the Taliban government does not have the financial resources to run the war-torn country. Traders and small traders on the streets of Kabul are worried about the ongoing economic crisis and accuse Washington of pushing their country to the brink of economic collapse.
The US government has frozen more than $9 billion in Afghan central bank reserves, and since the Taliban came to power on August 15, several donors and organizations, including the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, have stopped payments.
