Afghanistan has received 64 million U.S. dollars recently in humanitarian cash assistance, the country's central bank said on Monday.

"Following a series of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, today, February 14, the 14th shipment of humanitarian aid of 32 million U.S. dollars reached Afghanistan and delivered to the Afghanistan International Bank (AIB)," Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB) wrote on Twitter.

On Sunday, the DAB also received 32 million U.S. dollars in assistance and delivered the cash to AIB, the bank said.

"The DAB while appreciating the humanitarian assistance of the international community, calls for more cooperation in this field," it said.

The war-torn Asian country had received more than 345 million U.S. dollars in cash assistance since the Taliban's takeover of Afghanistan in mid-August last year, according to figures issued by the bank.

Following the Taliban's takeover Afghanistan, the United States froze more than nine billion U.S. dollars of assets of the Afghan central bank.
