Amir Khan Muttaqi, who was appointed by the Taliban as foreign minister in Afghanistan’s interim government, held a meeting in Kabul with Deborah Lyons, UN Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), the country’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abdul Qahar Balkhi said on Saturday.
Axar.az reports that this was reported by foreign media.
"At the talks, Ms. Lyons assured that the [mission] staff will be increased in order to provide humanitarian assistance [to Afghanistan]. In addition, she promised that she would visit the US to raise the issue of the recovery of Afghanistan’s banking system (or the unfreezing of Afghanistan’s blocked state reserves $9.4 billion worth)," the statement said.
According to the statement, "thanking Ms. Lyons for her efforts, Muttaqi confirmed that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (the Taliban’s name for the state) completely prepared to deliver humanitarian aid to all those in need in the country."
