The Taliban thanks America for $64million as part of $1.2BILLION international aid package but says the US should ‘have a heart’ as it pleads for more

  • Acting foreign minister Amir Khan Muttaqi said money would be spent wisely
  • He asked the US to show appreciation to the Taliban for the troop withdrawal 
  • Washington donated $64million with China and Pakistan also pledging aid 

The Taliban has thanked the world for pledging more than a billion dollars in emergency aid to Afghanistan, and urged the US to show ‘heart’ by donating more.

Amir Khan Muttaqi, the regime’s acting foreign minister, told a press conference the hardline Islamist group would spend donor money wisely and use it to alleviate poverty.

He was speaking a day after the United Nations said a total of $1.2billion in aid had been pledged to Afghanistan, $64million of which came from the US.
