UN urges economic aid for Afghanistan to avoid disaster – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

The UN Secretary General is calling for immediate economic help for Afghanistan in a bid to avert a humanitarian disaster.

Leaders of the G20 nations are meeting virtually on Tuesday to discuss a worsening economic situation in the country.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said the Afghan people cannot be made to suffer “collective punishment” because of the Taliban, adding that “people should not die of hunger in any circumstance”.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the EU is proposing an €1bn Afghan support package to help “avert a major humanitarian and socio-economic collapse” in the country.

Why should we aid them for their economy? The Taliban is a terrorist country. They'll stab the UN in the back

My Thoughts October 13, 2021 - 12:09 AM

Maybe best to leave Afghanistan alone completely. No refugees, no aid, no help just leave them alone to find their way. It will be painful short term but long term I think better for them to find their own way.🤔

Ahhh yes, that country now controlled by terrorists needs financial aid 🤔, sounds like a positive and safe investment opportunity

The majority of Afghanistani people want the Taliban rule. It's hard to understand why, but that is what the majority prefers. The taliban itself has over 50k fighters meaning people believe in their ideals.

Raj55 October 13, 2021 - 12:12 AM

Yes please bail out Taliban by aiding Afghanistan so that they can continue to murder more people, their own and others. There is no such thing as selective aid because your aid WILL fall in to Taliban hands.

Let disaster happen, this is the only way the Afghan people realise that they need to get rid of Taliban.

Foreign aid makes up 40% of their GDP, yet they wanted the Taliban! Most ungrateful nation ever

We should deliver Biden to Afghanistan

When it says “The UN urges”, that refers to all the muslim countries and those who suck up to them.

Back the tajiks in a civil war , and make one of them king . What the country needs is a king not theocracy or democracy, monarchy tribal people understand. If they had a king we could help
Him

Brad Stenger October 13, 2021 - 12:22 AM

If the UN wanted to help maybe they would have not let it get to this point. Fuck off. The Taliban got it under their control, right?! Then let them deal with it!! Not our problem anymore!

Al De Niro October 13, 2021 - 12:24 AM

An army of 15,000 Pakistanis helped the Taliban overthrow the government, let Pakistan take the bill.

2 predictions for Christmas 🎅. Bitcoin Will be $100k🇺🇸 and Joe Biden will no longer be President. So because of the economic crisis and the rate of unemployment, now is the best time to invest and make money.

What was America doing in Afghanistan for 20 years? Saving opium

Mat Broomfield October 13, 2021 - 12:27 AM

I'm always torn between my compassion for the people who want to live free of a harsh theistic, misogynistic regime, and those who embrace it. Much like America really. I'm afraid it is not the duty of tax payers' of other nations to support their choices.

Al A October 13, 2021 - 12:30 AM

wow now look whos begging no aid for afganistan

Cryp October 13, 2021 - 12:30 AM

shortage of money supply causes prices to get cheaper, NOT! more expensive, economics 101… why the lies BBC?

It’d be like directly nourishing the cancer which caused the ill, what chance it’d trickle resource to improve healthy tissue? It’d just spread the enemy’s influence.

Shakedown 84 October 13, 2021 - 12:32 AM

This is the epitome of patience, and quite a fantastic example of tolerance.

There should be some strings attached to aid supplied by nations who let’s be honest are being guided in large by women to roll out this humanitarian aid. Maybe some sort of oversight or cooperation on the ground, because I never heard of free anything.

Prayers for Afghanistan.
