(Natural News) Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, which is set to receive over $1 billion in “aid” from the World Bank, is going to get more.
On March 17, the United Nations Security Council voted to expand support and financial aid in Afghanistan – despite the country being controlled by the hardline Islamist Taliban terrorist group. And while the majority of the developed world has shunned Taliban-run Afghanistan, the UN has increased its presence in the region devastated by the August 2021 Taliban takeover.
The international community provided nearly 80 percent of Afghanistan’s public spending budget during the previous administration. The aid has since been suspended due to the regime change. The UN resolution, which obviously avoided using the word Taliban, allows the globalist organization to restore work in the area.
“The implicit recognition of a ‘legitimate’ Taliban government in Afghanistan is as dangerous as it is naive. With Iran, there’s already one funded terrorist regime. We don’t need two,” said an article published by 100percentfedup.com.
The World Bank earlier declared that it will be granting $1 billion in aid to the region via third parties, such as international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), to support the delivery of essential basic services.
Here’s a reminder: The U.S. spent $83 billion in equipment for Afghanistan and left basically all of it behind during Joe Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal. That’s $83 billion in U.S. tax dollars, which the American people will never recover, and $83 billion worth of military equipment, which a radical Islamic government can now use as it pleases.
The UN and World Bank want to give them more. (Related: Biden knew all along the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan was imminent.)
World Bank approves $1 billion fund for Afghanistan
The executive board of the World Bank recently approved a plan to utilize more than $1 billion from a frozen Afghanistan trust fund to bankroll critically needed education, agriculture, health and family programs.
The plan, which will avoid sanctioned Taliban authorities by spending the money through UN agencies and international aid groups, will provide a major boost to efforts seeking to ease the country’s worsening humanitarian and economic crises.
The World Bank said in a statement that the approach “aims to support the delivery of essential basic services, protect vulnerable Afghans, help preserve human capital and key economic and social services and reduce the need for humanitarian assistance in the future.”
Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF) was frozen last August when the Taliban took over Kabul as the final U.S.-led international troops left after 20 years.
Foreign governments ended financial support consisting more than 70 percent of government expenses while the U.S. led in the freezing of some $9 billion in Afghan central bank funds.
The financial aid cuts hastened an economic collapse, worsening cash trouble and escalating a humanitarian crisis that the UN said has pushed more than half of Afghanistan’s population of 39 million people to the brink of starvation.
The World Bank statement added that as a first step, ARTF donors will choose four projects worth about $600 million that will assist “urgent needs in education, health and agricultural sectors, as well as community livelihoods” and that there will be a “strong focus on ensuring that girls and women participate and benefit from the support.”
The Taliban has untangled gains in rights made by women during the past 20 years, including restraining them from working and limiting their travel unless escorted by a close male relative.
Most girls have been banned from going to school beyond seventh grade since the Taliban takeover. The group said all girls will be allowed to return to classrooms later this month.
The World Bank will be closely cooperating with ARTF donors and multilateral stakeholders to finalize the design and funding allotment for these projects. The bank’s operational policies apply to activities funded through recipient-executed grant arrangements and the World Bank remains engaged in project design and supervision.
The $600 million will be augmented with additional allotments from the ARTF this year as conditions allow and as decided by the ARTF donors. This phased approach is intended to be flexible and adaptive, realizing that the situation on the ground continues to be fluid.
