‘Curbs on the US aid to Afghanistan would further the humanitarian crisis’

KABUL (SW) – Anylsts believe the likely curbs on the US aid to Afghanistan would further the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.

According to reports, the House of Representatives of the United States of America is set to approve the country’s defense budget for 2023, but will also approve a plan based on which any aid from the US Department of Defense to Afghanistan will be prohibited.

This plan has been welcomed and criticized by some members of the American House of Representatives.

Ilhan Omar, one of the members of the US House of Representatives, who opposed this plan, tweeted that Afghanistan is facing the most terrible humanitarian crisis. “The United States should act with all its ability to provide humanitarian aid, not to impose unnecessary restrictions.”

The details of the plan indicate that the US Department of Defense will be prohibited from sending medical equipment, food, money exchange and other aid goods to Afghanistan.

At the same time, a number of political experts believe that these sanctions were imposed by the United States because of the dominance of the Islamic Emirate over Afghanistan.

Experts warn about the consequences of cutting off aid and the lack of the US support.

Hashemi Parwani, an expert on political issues, told Salam Watandar that imposing any sanctions and cutting off aid from the United States will worsen the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.

“If such sanctions continue due to the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s rule, its impact on the living conditions of the Afghan people, the deterioration of the humanitarian condition in Afghanistan will intensify, and the people’s economic structure and banking system will fall apart”.

Tariq Farhadi, another expert on political issues, said why was Kabul unable to manage the relationship well.” I also blame the Afghan government here.”

We wanted to get the opinion of the officials of the Islamic Emirate about the defense budget plan of the United States of America, but Bilal Karimi, one of the deputy spokespersons of the Islamic Emirate, said that he does not have enough information about this.
