KABUL, March 15 (Xinhua) -- Another batch of 40 million U.S. dollars in cash as humanitarian aid reached cash-strapped and war-torn Afghanistan on Tuesday, a statement of Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB), the country's central bank, said Wednesday.

Welcoming the step as a move to stabilize the country's impoverished economy, the statement said that the amount had been deposited in a private commercial bank here in Kabul.

This was the second batch of aid in cash that Afghanistan has received over the past week. On March 7, the country received 40 million dollars and deposited it in a private commercial bank.

Afghanistan has received roughly 2 billion dollars in cash over the past 17 months as part of the international community's humanitarian aid to stabilize the country's economy.
