China To Fund Taliban?

China hinted at providing financial assistance to the Taliban given the U.S. moving to block $7 billion in Afghan government funds in the Federal Reserve. The IMF has followed suit, blocking Afghanistan’s access to $470 million. A commitment by 60 countries last November to give Afghanistan $12 billion may not happen. Germany is also refusing to go ahead with grants to Kabul.
