While, Joe Biden, The President of the United States, in a controversial executive order, ordered the confiscation of 7 billion of Afghanistan’s frozen assets under the pretext of paying “compensation” to the victims of 9/11 and offering aid to “help” the people of Afghanistan out of reach of the Islamic Emirate. has done.
The US presidential decree has provoked reactions among Afghans and other countries.
Earlier, the Taliban said US President Biden in defiance of all international norms initially frozen Afghanistan’s assets, which were deposited in his country’s banks, and now wants to use it irresponsibly.
The Islamic Emirate strongly condemns Biden’s unjustified actions as a violation of the rights of all Afghans.
The 9/11 attacks had nothing to do with Afghans.
Any tempering of the assets of the Afghan people under the pretext of the 9/11 incident is blatant abuse and injustice which is a clear violation of the agreement reached with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan as well as an attempt to cover up the 20 years of its crimes committed in Afghanistan.
The United States in order to avoid international reproach, and not to damage its relations with the Afghan people, must relinquish its decision.
Unfreeze the wealth of Afghans unconditionally and further refrain from any provocative actions that can lead to more mistrust.
If the United States does not deviate from its position and continues its provocative actions, the Islamic Emirate will also be forced to reconsider its policy towards its country.
