font size    

Visiting Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul on Monday reiterated Ankara's continued support to the post-Taliban Afghanistan.

At a joint press conference with his Afghan counterpart Rangin Dadfar Spanta, Gul said that like in the past, Turkey would continue to stand alongside Afghanistan and support it to recover.

Gul, who had visited his troops in Maidan Shar, the capital of Wardak province, also said that the Turkish government would build a hospital in the Afghan capital of Kabul this year.

Turkey has pledged to contribute 110 million U.S. dollars to the war-ravaged Afghanistan.

About 800 Turkish soldiers have been serving under the command of NATO in Afghanistan to help stabilize security here.

Gul who earlier exchanged views on bilateral relations with Spanta will call on Afghan President Karzai and discuss with him matters pertaining mutual interests.
