The Ministry of Economy rejected claims it is interfering with the operations of relief organizations.
The deputy minister of economy, Abdul Latif Nazari, said that the ministry keeps an eye on how foreign aid is distributed to ensure transparency and fairness.
According to Nazari, these claim were made for political reasons.
"We provide facilities for them, we removed the bureaucracy and we cooperate with them. But interference is never in our policy,” Nazari noted.
Earlier, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) said in a report that the current Afghan government interferes in the process of distributing humanitarian aid.
Foreign Policy magazine, which published this report, said that USAID found that the current Afghan government is trying to lead and monetize humanitarian aid.
"They make excuses, and in reality, they have started making excuses, and they use particular pressures on the Taliban in order to achieve certain aims,” said Sayed Masoud, an economist.
It was noted in the USAID May report that humanitarian aid donors were hesitant to continue aiding Afghanistan because of "Taliban" interference in the process.
The deputy minister of economy also talked about the reduction of humanitarian aid compared to last year.
“The aid is not as much as we expected at the moment, but our diplomacy and consultation are continuing in order to attract more aid,” Abdul Latif Nazari noted.
According to economists, the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan now more than ever requires a seamless flow of help to people.
“Given the urgency and need that the people of Afghanistan currently have for the aid of the UN, it is necessary to consider complete transparency in the distribution of aid," said Shahir Bashiri, an economist.
This comes as the US special inspector for Afghanistan's reconstruction announced last week that the US House of Representatives had approved a law restricting Washington's assistance to Afghanistan.
According to SIGAR, this law will prohibit the US State Department and American donor organizations from sending aid to the current government of Afghanistan.
