Islamic Emirate bans use of foreign currency

The Islamic Emirate on Tuesday announced a complete ban on the use of foreign currency in Afghanistan.

In a statement, the Islamic Emirate said the economic situation and national interests require the people to avoid use of foreign currency.

“The economic situation and national interests in the country require that all Afghans use Afghani in every trade,” the statement reads.

According to the statement, the use of foreign currencies will have a negative impact on the country’s economic situation.

The move is taken amid economic problems and the freeze of Afghanistan’s central bank assets abroad.
