Crisis ends in Afghanistan's currency depreciation

TEHRAN, Aug. 17 (MNA) – The value of the Afghan currency, the Afghani, fell again on Tuesday after Kabul fell to Taliban forces and the governor of the country's Central Bank escaped.

Afghan Central Bank Chief Ajmal Ahmadi fleed Kabul.

This situation has reduced the central bank's ability to strengthen the national currency and has created a great deal of panic in the market.

The Afghani fell 1.7 percent, on Tuesday, to 83.5013 per dollar. This was the fourth day of decline, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
