Afghanistan’s Foreign Ministry has welcomed the US decision over issuing licenses to banks to let Afghans living abroad transfer money to relatives in Afghanistan.

Spokesman of the Ministry in a series of Twitter posts said that the move is a good step and will allow Afghans access the services of the Western Union, Money Gram, and other banking channels.

“We appreciate this progress and hope the right of Afghans to access all services of the international banking system will be guaranteed.” Reads a Tweet.

US Treasury Department issued its 16th General license on Saturday, December 11, and allowed Afghans to send money to Afghanistan but acknowledged that the money should be for personal purposes only not for trade.

The US has said that the step was taken to address the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan and will not ease sanctions on the Taliban but the spokesperson of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Zabiullah Mujahid said the decision is a result of their fruitful engagement with the US in Doha.

Zabiullah Mujahid added that many steps as such are needed to be taken to build bilateral trust and finally the humanitarian crisis to be addressed.
