China’s UN envoy urges US to return foreign assets to Afghanistan

Zhang Jun, the Permanent Representative of China to the United Nations, said the US should without conditions immediately return foreign assets to Afghanistan.

The diplomat said there’s no progress in the unfreezing of the assets. "The Afghan people need every bit of these resources. That’s why it’s unjustified to freeze Afghanistan’s foreign assets," the envoy said at a meeting of the UN Security Council. "The US should react to calls by the Un secretary general, human rights experts and humanitarian agencies and without any conditions return foreign assets to Afghanistan as soon as possible."

China, he said, stands for "comprehensive measures to support a proper development of Afghanistan."

After the Taliban (outlawed in Russia) took power in Afghanistan in 2021 Washington seized the assets of that country that were held in US banks.
