STEPANAKERT, NOVEMBER 3, ARTSAKHPRESS: "The economic situation and national interests in the country require that all Afghans use Afghani currency in their every trade," the Taliban said.

The economy is struggling due to the withdrawal of international financial support after the Taliban took control.

The US dollar has been used widely in Afghanistan's markets.

Dollars are also often used for trade in areas bordering Afghanistan's neighbours such as Pakistan.
