The Second Deputy of the Prime Minister, Abdul Salam Hanafi, said that humanitarian aid must be distributed in coordination with the Islamic Emirate to the vulnerable people in Afghanistan.
He said that the employees of the Islamic Emirate should also be involved in providing aid to the people in need across the country.
“The international aid is not a permanent solution for poverty and countering starvation and for the economic crisis. We believe that the government and international community should boost up economic activities,” Hanafi told a gathering in Kabul on Wednesday.
He called for transparency in the distribution of aid.
The deputy special representative of the UN secretary-general and the humanitarian coordinator for Afghanistan said that the organization has provided humanitarian aid to around 18 million Afghans in 2022.
“I am very proud today to say that in the last four months we have scaled up to reach by the end of the year nearly 18 million people with humanitarian aid,” said Ramiz Alakbarov, deputy special representative of the UN secretary-general and the humanitarian coordinator for Afghanistan.
The Ministry of Economy said that it has established three committees to distribute aid for the people across the county.
“We have formed a committee in the capital to transfer the aid properly to the vulnerable people nationwide,” said Deputy Minister Lal Mohammad Walizada.
Afghanistan is facing multiple crises due to the freeze of its central bank assets and the suspension of international aid.
