The Taliban's deputy prime minister on Friday urged the global community to offer support to Afghan people without any "political basis" as the country faces a major humanitarian crisis.

"In various places right now, people do not have food, accommodation, warm clothes, or money," Abdul Ghani Baradar said in a video message released by state media.

"The world has to support Afghan people without any political bias and carry out their humanitarian obligations."
