Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid stated on Wednesday that officials from 60 nations attended Afghanistan’s first-ever Economic conference.
On Wednesday, an economic conference was convened in Afghanistan to examine the country’s economic, private sector, and banking challenges.
According to Sputnik, the Taliban called on the international community to fulfil their duties to their country and pledged their support to the completion of vital projects such as the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline.
Mujahid stated on Twitter that the Economic Conference was attended by delegates from 20 international nations in person and 40 countries online, all of whom were debating Afghanistan’s economic, private sector, and banking difficulties in order to find acceptable answers to the situation.
The Taliban took control of Kabul on August 15, and the nation has since been hammered by a worsening economic, humanitarian, and security crises.
A combination of the suspension of foreign aid, the freezing of Afghan government assets, and international sanctions against the Taliban has thrown an already impoverished country into a full-fledged economic catastrophe.
The international world has provided many forms of support to the Afghan people, ranging from governments to non-governmental groups.
