Over one-third of the Afghan population are in urgent need of food assistance, the World Food Programme (WFP) said on Tuesday.

The UN body adds that it requires $650million to sustain its operations in Afghanistan in the next six months.

Meanwhile, the European Union (EU) announced that it will provide €150million to Afghanistan and some neighboring countries in 2024.

However, the Ministry of Economy says that international sanctions on Afghanistan are the main cause for poverty and unemployment in Afghanistan.

The ministry vows to uproot poverty and unemployment through implementation of major economic projects.
