Suhail Shaheen in a series of the Twitter posts said that the world must support Afghanistan and unfreeze the assets of the Afghan people.

“The winter is around the corner, so the immediate need for the International Community to disburse on an urgent basis the recently announced nearly one-billion-euro (some $1.2-billion) aid package pledged at a virtual G20 summit for Afghanistan, to all poor, vulnerable and displaced people.” Reads a tweet.

Suhail Shaheen has promised to be cooperating with channeled agencies and NGOs on the ground to distribute aids.
