Afghan finance minister accuses foreign media propaganda for the declining Afghani

Minister ZakhilwalSpeaking at a press conference in Kabul on Sunday, Afghan Finance Minister Hazrat Omar Zakhilwal alleged that the foreign media painted a negative picture of Afghanistan’s economy situation after 2014—a propaganda that has resulted in the declining value of the Afghani currency against the US dollar.

Western media’s propaganda has spread baseless concerns among the public over economic uncertainty that has taken a heavy toll on the Afghan currency, said the Minister.

The US dollar has appreciated drastically against the Afghani lately. The buying rate of a US dollar was 57.35 AFN on Sunday.

Rejecting the media reports, Minister Zakhilwal reassured the general public that the international community has pledged long-term assistance to the war-torn country.
