KABUL (Pajhwok): Pakistan and Uzbekistan have agreed to lobby for unfreezing Afghan assets that were frozen by the international community in the aftermath of the Taliban take over.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan and Uzbekistan’s President Shavkat Mirziyoyev made the commitment late on Thursday during a joint press conference in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan.

“We have decided, we will try our best that the Afghan funds that have been frozen […] we will lobby on this,” said Prime Minister Khan, gesturing to himself and the Uzbekistan president.

He added that the two countries would also meet with the Afghans to see what “conditions” are required for recognition from the international community. “What Afghanistan can do to gain international recognition: we have decided to do this campaign together.”
