Weeks after forming the government in Afghanistan, the Taliban is working on resolving a series of problems that have held up salaries for public sector workers; Reuters reported quoting the government’s finance ministry.

The report said that many public sector workers said they had not been paid for weeks and with banks imposing strict limits on cash withdrawals while prices for basic necessities rise, many face serious hardship.

Quoting ministry, the report said “technical problems” had led to a delay in paying salaries but special teams were working on resolving payroll issues as quickly as possible.
