US should release Afghan financial assets - Iran FM

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said on Monday that the United States should release Afghanistan's financial assets due to humanitarian reasons. The funds have been blocked since the Taliban seized power in that country.

"The assets of Afghanistan blocked by America... should be used for humanitarian purposes and improvement of the living conditions in Afghanistan," he declared, according to a local news agency following his meeting with his Afghan counterpart, Amir Khan Muttaqi.

Earlier, a spokesman of the Iranian Foreign Ministry stated the visit did not constitute official recognition of Afghanistan.
