World Bank Stops Financial Aid to Taliban Controlled Afghanistan

 - Sakshi Post

The World Bank recently shared that they do not want to aid the Taliban in Afghanistan and hence they will stop the financial support. Afghanistan is currently under Taliban rule, the situation is really bad there and World Bank is not willing to fuel the fire in the country that has become a war zone now.

A spokesperson from the Bank said that they are extremely concerned about the situation. They are worried as to what might happen and also the current plight of women there. They have stopped the operations in Afghanistan. The World Bank has suspended disbursements of its operations in Afghanistan, according to the spokesperson.

In Afghanistan, the World Bank has several development projects that now will fall under the rule and monitoring of the Taliban. Since 2002, the bank has given the war-zone country $5.3 billion in financial aid, largely in the form of grants.
