While appreciating the humanitarian assistance of the international community, the Afghan central bank called for better relations with its partners in the financial and banking sectors.
“Da Afghanistan Bank welcomes the admittance of currencies into the country through legal and principled ways and asks the international community to work together and cooperate with Afghanistan in other fields as well,” the statement read.
