The Taliban announced that “The economic situation and national interests in the country require that all Afghans use Afghani currency in their every trade”. The economy is said to be struggling due to the withdrawal of financial support internationally, since the takeover of the taliban. Zabihullah Mujahid mentioned in a statement posted online that, “The Islamic Emirate instructs all citizens, shopkeepers, traders, businessmen and the general public to henceforth conduct all transactions in Afghanis and strictly refrain from using foreign currency”. The US dollar was widely used in the Afghanistan markets. It was further mentioned that anyone who violates this order is to be followed with legal action.
