Kabul: Amid the wide scale death and destruction caused by the devastating earth quake The Islamic Emirate has urged international community to ‘not politicize the delivery of humanitarian aid to victims of earthquake’.
“After the re-establishment of the Islamic Emirate, unfortunately, most of the countries have stopped their humanitarian aid to Afghanistan. We ask them to not politicize this aid and to continue their aid to the people of Afghanistan,” said Ghulam Ghous Naseri, deputy Minister of Finance of the Ministry of State for Natural Disaster Management.
The officials claimed that there are still people trapped in the wreckage.
While the IEA has assured that it has also ‘set aside 100 million afghanis for the relatives of the victims, but the assistance is insufficient’, Tolo news reported.
While countries like Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, Qatar, China and a number of other countries have pledged to provide humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, Iran has also raised its voice to not ‘politicize aid work’. “The sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council on specific individuals and entities in Afghanistan must not impede humanitarian, economic, or developmental cooperation with Afghanistan,” Takht Ravanchi said on Thursday addressing the United Nations Security Council meeting on ‘Situation in Afghanistan’.
