The request of an American senator to stop this country’s aid to Afghanistan

Following the concern of some American officials and representatives of this country about the Taliban’s use of international aid, Marco Rubio, a US senator, proposed a plan to stop Washington’s financial aid to Afghanistan through the United Nations.Rubio stated this in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday night, 23.According to him, until it is ensured that humanitarian aid is not used to strengthen “terrorist groups”, the United Nations should stop its aid to Afghanistan under the rule of the Taliban.This American senator emphasized that Washington’s money should not be spent on strengthening the Taliban regime.It should be mentioned that before this, the American officials and the representatives of the Congress of this country were worried about the Taliban’s misuse of the humanitarian aid of the international community, especially the United States.Previously, John Sopko, the US special inspector for the reconstruction of Afghanistan (Sigar) said in the month of Scorpio this year that the Taliban use a major part of that country’s aid for their own interests.At that time, by presenting an eight-page report of this department to the US Senate, he stated that the Taliban are diverting US aid or otherwise benefiting from a significant amount of this money.According to Sopko, the Taliban authorities put pressure on aid organizations to hire their people and even interfere in the selection of areas for implementation of projects.According to the latest report of SIGAR, the United States has sent more than 11 billion in humanitarian aid to Afghanistan in the last two years.
