Taliban Urges US To Show "Heart" After Raking In $1.2 Billion At UN Donor Conference

The Taliban is urging the United States to have a "heart" and step up and pledge humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, as well as unfreeze sanctioned assets. The provocative and deeply ironic statements (after a 20-year occupation which Washington ostensibly framed as "helping" the Afghan people) came after a donor conference in Geneva on Monday resulted in $1.2 billion in aid pledged.

The United Nations hosted the international donor conference, with an initial aim to reach over $600 million, but by the days' end UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres unveiled pledges totaling more than a billion dollars. "This conference has fully met my expectations in relation to the solidarity with the people in Afghanistan," Guterres said.
