Geneva: In Afghanistan, the situation is getting worse due to a lack of government and administration. There is a shortage of essential commodities including health facilities in the country. Meanwhile, the United Nations (UN) has warned that if the situation does not improve, the country may face a food crisis within a month. This will lead to starvation.
The United Nations (UN) report comes at a time when the Taliban is working towards forming a government. The report said one in three Afghan civilians may have been starved due to the food crisis. According to media reports, Rameez Alakbarov, the UN humanitarian coordinator in Afghanistan, said on Wednesday, "From a humanitarian point of view, the situation in Afghanistan is very tense. The official said that the situation has now become such that half of the children's population in the country is struggling to manage their next meals.''
According to media reports, the prices of food items in Afghanistan have gone up by 50 percent in recent times, while petrol prices have gone up by 75 percent. International aid has stopped reaching the country after the situation at Kabul airport worsened and flights stopped from there. International aid to Afghanistan will depend on the recognition of the Taliban government.
