Foreign Minister of Uzbekistan Abdulaziz Kamilov in his contribution at the Italy-Central Asia Second Ministerial Meeting in Tashkent on December 8 urged the world community to lift sanctions and unfreeze the assets of Afghanistan.

Neighboring Uzbekistan has now become another country in the region that asks for the release of over $9.5 billion preserves of Afghanistan now frozen in American banks.

Earlier, Pakistan, China, and Russia had urged the world to unfreeze Afghanistan's assets.

The Uzbek Foreign Minister asks the world to undertake actions to lift sanctions of Afghanistan, unfreeze its assets, and work for the restoration of its banking system as the country is going through the worst humanitarian situation.

Abdulaziz Kamilov suggested a humanitarian corridor to avoid humanitarian disasters in Afghanistan.

He has also called on the Taliban to take action and do not allow terrorism to spread from their soil.
