Russia’s Putin Says Afghan Assets Should be Released

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday Afghanistan should receive economic support and get its financial assets unfrozen as its stability was in the interest of all its neighbours. 

Washington said it has no plans to release billions in Afghan gold, investments and foreign currency reserves parked in the United States that it froze after the Taliban seized power in August, despite pressure from humanitarian groups and others who say the cost may be the collapse of Afghanistan's economy.

The Islamic Emirate won backing from 10 regional powers at talks in Moscow on Wednesday for the idea of a United Nations donor conference to help the country stave off economic collapse and a humanitarian catastrophe. 

Russia is moving toward excluding the Taliban from its list of extremist organizations, President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday, a day after high-level talks between Moscow and the Islamic Emirate.
