The White House said that the United States has become the largest donor of humanitarian aid for Afghanistan and intends to continue working in this direction.

The virtual G20 meeting on Afghanistan did not lead to a change in the U.S. position regarding the freezing of financial assets of the former Afghan government. This was stated on Tuesday at a regular briefing by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

“No, nothing has changed here,” she said, answering the relevant question.

At the same time, Psaki stressed that the United States has become the largest donor of humanitarian aid for Afghanistan and intends to continue working in this direction.

On August 15, the U.S. administration froze the state reserves of the Afghan government in American banks so that representatives of the radical Taliban movement could not access them (banned in the Russian Federation). The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have also stopped all aid to Kabul. The total amount of frozen funds is about $9.5 billion.
