Reuters exclusively reports Afghan central bank drained dollar stockpile before Kabul fell

Reuters exclusively reported that the Afghan central bank ran down most of its U.S. dollar cash reserves in the weeks before the Taliban took control of the country, according to an assessment prepared for Afghanistan’s international donors, exacerbating the current economic crisis. The confidential, two-page brief, written in early September by senior international economic officials, said the country’s severe cash shortage began before the Taliban took control of Kabul. It was written for the use of donors and lenders, including the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
