The United States and the European Union have pledged more assistance of over 3 billion U.S. dollars to post-war Afghanistan, Afghan Foreign Minister Rangin Dadfar Spanta said Saturday.
"In addition to its previous contributions, the U.S. agreed to provide 2 billion U.S. dollars fresh assistance to Afghanistan in order to support and equip Afghan national army and police," Spanta told newsmen after returning home from a two-week long tour to the United States and Europe.
The European Union would provide 1 billion Euros (about 1.3 billion U.S. dollars) to Afghanistan to rebuild itself, he added.
However, he did not say when the fund will be disbursed to the Afghan government.
Both the United States and the European Union have hugely contributed in the rebuilding of the post-Taliban nation over the past nearly five years.
