Japan to unfreeze assets of Afghan banks.

TOKYO, Jan. 28 Kyodo

The Japanese government will unfreeze assets held in Japan by four Afghanistan banks, the government said Monday.

The decision to unfreeze assets held by Afghan National Bank, Agriculture Development Bank of Afghanistan, Afghan Export Bank and Export Promotion Bank of Afghanistan follows a U.N. sanctions committee's removal of the banks from a list of Taliban-controlled institutions and groups.

The step takes effect on Tuesday.

A total of 279 individuals and organizations linked with the Taliban, however, remain subject to the asset freeze.
