Financial sanctions, Afghanistan

Afghanistan is currently subject to financial sanctions. This document contains a current list of designated persons.


In 1999 the United Nations required all member states to freeze the assets, prevent the entry into or the transit through their territories, and prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale and transfer of arms and military equipment with regard to any individual or entity associated with Al-Qaida, Usama bin Laden and/or the Taliban as designated by the relevant Sanctions Committee.

In 2011 the Security Council split the sanctions regime into two groups - an Al-Qaida regime and a country-specific Afghanistan regime.
