Taliban to start paying overdue salaries of Afghan government workers

Afghanistan's Taliban administration will begin paying the overdue salaries of government workers from Saturday, officials said.

Iran PressAsia: Thousands of Afghan authorities employees are owed at the least three months of wage, one of the numerous crises confronted by the Taliban.

“The finance ministry says that, starting today, the past three months salaries of all government workers and staff will be paid totally,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid stated on Twitter, Reuters reported.

It was not instantly clear the place the funds to pay the salaries would come from.

Even earlier than the Taliban took power in August, many public sector employees stated that they had not been paid for weeks.
