Islamabbad: The Russian foreign ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova asserted that Moscow upholds the decision of the World Bank to release $280 million of the frozen Afghan assets, but total assets should be unfrozen. “We support the decision of the World Bank to allocate $280 million from the frozen funds of the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund to the UN World Food Program and UNICEF. However, we consider the measure to be insufficient and call for unfreezing the remaining funds, which amount to more than $1 billion, as soon as possible,” she stated.
