USA will not slow down sanctions against the Taliban (banned in the Russian Federation as a terrorist organization) if it continues to restrict the free movement of the Afghan population. This was stated by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
According to the head of the US diplomatic department, the UN Security Council previously adopted a resolution calling on the Afghan Taliban to fulfill its obligations to ensure the safe and free departure of foreign citizens and residents of Afghanistan. If the Taliban restrict the free departure of Afghans, there will be no talk of any sanctions, Blinken said.
The head of the foreign ministry stressed that the Taliban wants to ease sanctions to ensure that their leaders can travel the world safely … They are now deprived of this opportunity under sanctions. However, if Taliban officials continue to violate UN Security Council resolutions, sanctions will not be eased.
