AIB takes delivery of 6th cash aid package from UN

The sixth transfer of humanitarian aid in US dollars from the United Nations has arrived in Afghanistan, Da Afghanistan Bank said on Monday.
The aid, totaling $32 million, was immediately handed over to the Afghanistan International Bank (AIB) on Sunday.
Da Afghanistan Bank, the central bank, has thanked the UN for its assistance in helping to overcome the current economic crisis in the country.
Last month the United Nations announced it would provide $20 million a week in cash as humanitarian aid to Afghanistan by the end of March this year to save the banking system from running out of cash.
The Central Bank of Afghanistan announced four days ago that it had also received the fifth package of $32 million in cash from the United Nations.
After the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, the United States froze nearly $10 billion in foreign reserves belonging to Afghanistan.The post AIB takes delivery of 6th cash aid package from UN first appeared on Ariana News.
