Yesterday, prime minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, in a meeting with president of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, said that Pakistan and Uzbekistan together will lobby to unfreeze Afghan assets.
Imran khan added that the two countries would also meet with Taliban to see what conditions are required for recognition from the international community and remarked, “what Afghanistan can do to gain international recognition: we have decided to do this campaign together.”
After Taliban’s domination, the US froze approximately $10 billion of Afghan assets.
Earlier the US president, Joe Biden, issued an executive order that $3.5 billion of the assets would be paid for victims of September 11, which elicited a wide range of reactions around the world.
But the White House spokesperson said that no money would be transferred without the court order.
