Afghanistan Universal Poverty: Afghanistan is moving towards another significant threat in the next few days. The United Nations (UN) has warned that hunger and poverty will soon reign in the country. Along with this, the social system will also collapse. According to the UN, the government will be shattered entirely; if this country does not get financial help, millions of Afghan citizens will be forced to live in poverty and hunger.
This warning has been given by United Nations Special Envoy Deborah Lyons. Deborah has appealed to the world’s countries on Thursday to come together and save the country from ruin. He has said that the issue of Afghanistan’s economy has to be understood.
The coming days can be dangerous.
He also expressed the apprehension that the Islamic rule of the Taliban may extend to other neighbouring countries as well. Lyons has said that the human rights crisis in Afghanistan is profound, and if it is not handled now, then the coming days will become more dangerous.
This situation has arisen due to the seizure of billions of dollars of Afghan property. If this continues, then the economic structure will be shattered. Many people can leave the country because of hunger and poverty, and the government will go back many centuries.
Lyons said this in the 15-member United Nations Security Council. He said, ‘The economy will have to be allowed to breathe for the next few months. The Taliban will have to be given a chance to do something different this time, especially for human rights, for all sections of people and perhaps even in terms of counter-terrorism.
The US freezes $ 9 billion.
According to Lyons, Afghanistan needs human rights relief on a large scale. Here money will have to be sent fast so that the country can be helped. But it has to be ensured that the Taliban authorities do not use this amount. The Central Bank of Afghanistan has kept $ 9 billion in reserve, which is currently with the US. This amount was frozen after the fall of the US-backed Afghan government.
The US Treasury Ministry has said that it is in no mood to relieve the sanctions imposed on the Taliban. Afghanistan was to receive $450 million from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on 23 August. But the IMF blocked this amount due to a lack of clarity from the new government.
