US going to cut Afghanistan's funding by $ 1 billion

It became known that the US authorities plan to significantly cut financial assistance to Afghanistan. The material publication WION reported on the relevant statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.


According to the head of the US State Department, the United States is going to cut funding for Kabul in the amount of $ 1 billion. This decision was made because of political disagreements and the unwillingness of the Afghan authorities to negotiate with the Taliban (* a terrorist group banned in Russia).

From an article in WION:

The United States said it would cut its aid to Afghanistan by $ 1 billion after President Ashraf Ghani and his main political rival, Abdullah Abdullah, were unable to agree to form a government of national unity and therefore could not begin negotiations with the Taliban.

The publication cites a statement by Mike Pompeo, who described the situation in Kabul as "disappointing."

Pompeo:

Kabul should understand what their behavior means for Afghanistan, for our common interests. Their failure to reach an agreement on a coalition government discourages both Afghans and the United States, coalition partners who sacrifice a lot to build a new future for this country.

The US Secretary of State noted that financial assistance to Kabul could be restored if an agreement is nevertheless reached.

The head of the US State Department added that if a coalition agreement is not signed, then assistance will not go to Afghanistan not only in 2020, but also in 2021.

For Afghanistan, the loss of US funding could lead to a serious economic blow. But it is also worth noting that over the years of the American stay in this country, Afghanistan has not been able to establish the work of its economy, and the allocated funds are often called one of the components of rampant corruption.

    First they made a lunar landscape, hundreds of thousands of citizens were killed, but now they don’t want to pay.
    Trump himself agreed с Талибаном, вот "законные" власти Афганистана, понимаешь, с талибами не могут договориться.
    So you need to pin down the dollar.

      Two parties will not be able to agree, the official Afghan government and the Taliban organization recognized as terrorist, where one side (Taliban) will act as an executioner in the near future to the official government

        ... and the Taliban recognized as terrorist
        Сегодня террористы, завтра уважаемые люди. Думаю, проблема в том, что они "пришлые". Коренные должны договориться с пришлыми. Закон гор с ваххабизмом. Трайбализм с таухидом и т.д. И да, это нереально.

    Слили внаглую своих "партнёров"- правительство Афганистана, а теперь ещё и издеваются. Мол если вы не договоритесь со своими будущими палачами, которые вас потом и расстреляют,мы вам финансирование уменьшим. Сумасшедший мир, чес слово

        In fact, money from oil stolen from Afghanistan, and by the way, by no means everything. So Afgan pays for himself, and the Merikos simply keep their money from them, and at will give out little by little. Just like they steal oil in Syria, and do sods to the broads (self-sufficiency type).

      What's wrong with that? What other options are there? Or does someone act differently? There are only two instruments in international politics - financial and military. In this case, the Americans decided to act softer. If, for example, Assad begins to mow towards ISIS, will we still help him?

    After the Twin Towers, the United States, announcing to the whole world zealously began the fight against terrorists, and from Afghanistan. Today, not only do they negotiate with the Taliban, they also force the Afghan government to do so. At the same time, the proven method is used without hesitation - refusal to finance, or cutting the amount. Naturally for a country requiring the whole world to live according to its laws.

    Kabul should understand what their behavior means for Afghanistan, for our common interests.

    "Общих", ага.

    Checkmate. Say no one has ever conquered Afghanistan? So - those days are gone.
