Afghanistan’s state TV (RTA) has cited officials in the Ministry of Finance that the Taliban’s interim government will soon pay two-month salaries of government employees.
Spokesperson of the ministry Ahmad Wali Haqmal said RTA that the salaries are most likely to be paid in two days.
It comes as Afghan government employees have not been paid for three months.
The Taliban have reportedly paid salaries of 35 administrations so far but the security sectors are yet to be paid.
In the meantime, Deputy Prime Minister of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Abdul Salaam Hanafi said they have enough amount of money in banks that will address needs and pay salaries of employees.
Earlier, the EU, Germany in particular, and UNICEF have pledged to be paying the expense and salaries of Afghan teachers and health workers.
