UNSC Adopts Resolution To Provide Aid To Afghanistan

Andrew H. Sweet

The United Nations Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution proposed by the United States that facilitates humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, which is on the verge of economic collapse while keeping funds out of the Taliban's hands.

The resolution passed on Wednesday states that "payment of funds, other financial assets or economic resources, and the provision of goods and services necessary to ensure the timely delivery of such assistance or to support such activities are permitted."

The U.S. also announced additional steps on Wednesday, easing sanctions against the Taliban to allow aid, updating guidance to make clear that exports of goods and cash transfers are allowed as long as they do not go to individuals targeted by U.S. sanctions.
