No clear path for unfreezing Afghan funds: Qatar FM

There is no clear path for unfreezing Afghan government funds, Qatar’s foreign minister told a conference on Wednesday, highlighting the economic challenges Afghanistan faces under its new Islamic Emirate (IEA) rulers.

Afghan Voice Agency (AVA)_ is hosting talks between the and Western officials and is seen as having influence over the new Afghan government.

Much of the Afghan central bank’s $10 billion in assets are parked overseas, Reuters reported.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Al Thani, Qatar’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, reiterated Qatar’s position that recognising the IEA government was not currently a priority, but international engagement was important.
