Reuters reveals U.S. and Taliban make progress on Afghan reserves, but big gaps remain

Reuters was first to report U.S. and Taliban officials have exchanged proposals for the release of billions of dollars from Afghan central bank reserves held abroad into a trust fund, offering a hint of progress in efforts to ease Afghanistan’s economic crisis. Significant differences between the sides remain, including the Taliban’s refusal to replace the bank’s top political appointees, one of whom is under U.S. sanctions as are several of the movement’s leaders.
