KABUL, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- Afghanistan received 40 million U.S. dollars in cash as humanitarian aid to bolster its impoverished economy on Wednesday, the country's central bank announced.
"As part of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan a batch of 40 million U.S. dollars in cash reached Kabul on Wednesday and was transferred to one of the country's commercial banks," the Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB) said in a statement.
Thanking the international community for the aid, the central bank called for easing banking relations with Afghanistan to help provide effective interaction with regional and world countries.
The war-town country received a similar amount on Sept. 13 as part of support to raise the country's foreign reserve, which is more than 1 billion U.S. dollars. ■
