Taliban authorities rejected the UNOCHA report that Islamic Emirate will collapse due to the prevailing economic and humanitarian crisis in the country.

Zabiullah Mujahid, the Islamic Emirate Spokesperson on Wednesday said on Twitter that the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) report that the current Afghanistan administration will collapse due to economic challenges is incorrect.  

The Islamic Emirate has deep roots; it is not a system that simply relies on foreign aid. However, with the grace of Allah and the tremendous efforts the country’s leadership pays, things will gradually improve, Mujahid said.

“Any country that has experienced decades-long war and invasions will have economic problems for some time, but the Islamic Emirate is determined to revive all the economic resources of the country, improve the economy, and major steps have been taken in the past one, and a half years,” Mujahid added.

Mujahid’s claim comes as the country is suffering from a dire economic and humanitarian crisis amid the harsh winter hitting Afghan people the worst. Millions of people are in immediate need of humanitarian aid to survive the harsh winter across the country, with no food, no sources of income, and no prospects.

The impact of the recent ban on female employees of non-governmental aid organizations has been disastrous for ordinary people, disrupting aid distribution to vulnerable families during these difficult times.

Meanwhile, since the return of the Taliban to power in August 2021, foreign investment has dropped to zero, with no provision to attract national or international investors to the country. Although some Chinese companies have shown interest in investing in Afghanistan’s mineral sources, security remains a major challenge.

Therefore, unless security is ensured, and the interim regime is recognized by the international community, economic recovery in Afghanistan seems very unlikely in the short or long term.
