The Ministry of Economy rejected claims it is interfering with the operations of relief organizations.

Afghan Voice Agency (AVA)_Monitoring, The deputy minister of economy, Abdul Latif Nazari, said that the ministry keeps an eye on how foreign aid is distributed to ensure transparency and fairness.

According to Nazari, these claim were made for political reasons.
"We provide facilities for them, we removed the bureaucracy and we cooperate with them. But interference is never in our policy,” Nazari noted.
Earlier, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) said in a report that the current Afghan government interferes in the process of distributing humanitarian aid.
“Given the urgency and need that the people of Afghanistan currently have for the aid of the UN, it is necessary to consider complete transparency in the distribution of aid," said Shahir Bashiri, an economist.
This comes as the US special inspector for Afghanistan's reconstruction announced last week that the US House of Representatives had approved a law restricting Washington's assistance to Afghanistan.
According to SIGAR, this law will prohibit the US State Department and American donor organizations from sending aid to the current government of Afghanistan.
