IMF Suspends Cooperation With Afghanistan

Baghdad The International Monetary Fund announced that Afghanistan will not be able to access the Fund’s resources, against the background of the uncertainty surrounding the legitimacy of the authority in it after the Taliban took control of the capital, Kabul.

“As always, the IMF is guided by the views of the international community,” an IMF spokesperson said.

He added: “There is currently a lack of clarity within the international community regarding the recognition of the government of Afghanistan, and as a result this country does not have access to the Special Drawing Rights or any other resources of the International Monetary Fund.”
