KABUL (Pajhwok): West nations continue shrinking away from delivering generous humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan, alleges a top Russian security official.

Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev claimed: “We see that the West intends to continue to avoid providing Afghanistan with substantial humanitarian aid.”

According to TASS news agency, the security official accused the US and the West of illegally blocking Afghan assets instead of releasing the funds for meeting the country’s humanitarian needs under the UN’s control.

“It looks cynical that Washington has earmarked half of these funds for compensation claims of relatives of the victims of 9/11 terrorist attacks,” he remarked.

The security chief asked the Biden administration to to immediately unfreeze the illegally frozen Afghan reserves for social and community projects in Afghanistan.
