The United States of America has decided to provide financial assistance to war-ravage country Afghanistan.
However, the assistance will not go directly in the hands of the Taliban who took control of the country last month.
The US Congressional said that the US will provide financial assistance to the United Nation and other agencies that are providing humanitarian assistance to the Afghans.
The United States is one of the biggest financers of Afghanistan since its invasion in Afghanistan in 2001 on a mission to eradicate terrorism from the country.
Democrats’ aide confirmed that lawmakers were certain about providing financial helps to Afghans who are internally displaced and are in immense need of humanitarian help but not to the Taliban directly.

An aide to senior senate said, “It would be difficult to convince members of Congress to do anything that would appear to be supporting the Taliban government” on the pretext of America-Taliban relation.
Last week, China also had announced that it would send food and health supplies to Afghanistan costing $31Million. China is among the first countries to reach out to Taliban itself before any other western countries.
Pakistan also provided initial assistance to the Afghans as it sent cooking oil and medicine to the related authorities in Kabul.
Pakistan’s foreign minister also urged the international communities to help Afghanistan unconditionally and unfreeze Afghanistan’s assets.
Pakistan has been accused of helping Taliban combating US troops secretively since US’ invasion in the country. The allegations, however have been denied by Islamabad.
