The UN proposes paying $6 mln to Taliban for guarding its facilities in Afghanistan

According to a UN document which a person familiar with the matter has confirmed to Reuters that the United Nations has proposed $6 million to Taliban for guarding its facilities in Afghanistan.

According to this document the funds will be spent as salaries of Taliban fighters who protect the UN facilities in Afghanistan.

The report stipulates that the plan underscores the persisting insecurity in Afghanistan following the Islamist Taliban’s takeover in August as the last U.S. troops left, as well as a dire shortage of funds hampering the new government because of a cutoff of international financial aid.

The funds will be delivered to Taliban’s interior ministry, that Taliban’s acting interior minister, Sirajuddin Haqqani, is the most wanted person of FBI, which has appointed $10 million for his arrest.

Taliban have not said anything about this issue yet.
