Following the most criticised failed U.S. mission in Afghanistan and the now Taliban takeover, the Biden administration has now freezes nearly $9.5 billion Afghanistan Central Bank Assets. The U.S. has further stopped shipments of cash to the nation as it tries to keep a Taliban-led government from accessing the money, an administration official confirmed Tuesday.

The official said that any central bank assets that the Afghan government has in the U.S. will not be available to the Taliban, which remains on the Treasury Department’s sanctions designation list.
