Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, in a video message broadcast Friday by the Radio-Television of Afghanistan (RTA), described the Afghan situation “critical” and said citizens across the country are in grave need of cash, shelter, and food.

“On the one side, there are oppressive sanctions, and on the other side there is no infrastructure in Afghanistan from the past 20 years to facilitate job opportunities for citizens,” he said.

“In the current situation, the Afghans are in need of immediate humanitarian assistance of the world.”

This comes as many areas were damages due to avalanches and floods as a result of heavy precipitation across Afghanistan in recent days.

Humanitarian organizations have repeatedly warned of a severe crisis amid the cold winter in Afghanistan.

The UN earlier said it has collected $1.5 billion to tackle the Afghan crisis.
