IMF says Afghanistan faces ‘looming humanitarian crisis’
TRT World says the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has said it is deeply concerned with the economic situation facing Afghanistan and warned of a “looming humanitarian crisis” facing the country after last month’s takeover by the Taliban.
IMF spokesman Gerry Rice said the global lender’s engagement with Afghanistan remains suspended, which means IMF funding is on hold.
He said the immediate focus should be on helping the Afghan people by allowing the flow of remittances and small-scale transfers and providing aid to countries hosting Afghan refugees.
