Coordination Meeting Held Among Aid Organizations, Islamic Emirate

A coordination meeting between the agencies of the United Nations and the Islamic Emirate was held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Participants in the meeting discussed the needs of the people of Afghanistan, the assistance provided by the United Nations in the past year, and the creation of coordination between the United Nations organizations and the caretaker government.

Amir Khan Muttaqi, the acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, in this meeting said that four decades of conflict in the country have prevented Afghanistan from economic development.

Hafiz Zia Ahmad Takal, deputy spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, said: "In this meeting, the needs of the people of Afghanistan and the priorities of the Islamic Emirate in various fields, the assistance of the United Nations in the past year, future plans, and the development of understanding and coordination between the parties were discussed."

The Deputy Special Representative (of Development) at UNAMA, Indrika Ratwette, spoke at the meeting about efforts to increase development assistance to Afghanistan.

Abdul Latif Nazari, Deputy Minister of Economy, said: "In the Foreign Ministry meeting, the continuation of assistance to the people of Afghanistan and the transition from humanitarian to developmental assistance were discussed. Additionally, the economic and social needs and priorities of the people of Afghanistan were presented to donors, international institutions, and relevant United Nations organizations, which were well received."

A number of economic analysts said that although humanitarian aid has managed to reduce the economic crisis in the past nearly three years, in the long term, it is necessary for global aid to focus more on infrastructure development and creating job opportunities for the country's citizens.

"We need to change their perspective, move them away from humanitarian aid and focus them on infrastructural and semi-infrastructural, developmental, and expansion aid, which can be effective," said Shabir Bashiri, an economic analyst.

"An effort must be made that is fundamental and also creates job opportunities, facilitates handicraft industries in various provinces to resolve the problems that plague us," said Abdul Basir Turki, another economic analyst.

Earlier, the acting Foreign Minister, Amir Khan Muttaqi, advocated for the initiation of infrastructure projects in the country during a meeting with members of the United Nations Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions (ACABQ) and representatives of UNAMA.
