The interim cabinet of the Taliban decided humanitarian aid be provided to the people of Panjshir after they took over the province as the very last holdout in Afghanistan.

The decision was taken by the cabinet led by the premier Mullah Muhammad Hassan Akhund.

Provincial officials of the Taliban and people in Panjshir province say that all the routes to the province reopened and telecommunication resumed.

People in the province said they are in a humanitarian crisis and desperately need relief assistance.

They have also said that 90 percent of the residents left Panjshir province after it fell to the Taliban.

The state-run radio and television network (RTA) has reported that the premier directed the lives of money exchangers, experts, and businessmen to be protected and the coordination and cooperation among security forces must be strengthened for establishing further security in Kabul city.

The very first cabinet meeting of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan comes as no country has recognized the government yet.
