Afghanistan conference promises support after troop withdrawal | The Guardian

An international conference in Bonn has promised continued support for Afghanistan after the withdrawal of Nato combat troops in 2014. But Afghan community organisations and aid agencies said the democratic gains of the past decade were already under threat from cuts in western aid budgets.

The conference — coming exactly a decade after an international agreement in Bonn to recognise the government of Hamid Karzai and the creation of a Nato-led security force — pledged to provide economic assistance to the Afghan government until 2024, when the International Monetary Fund predicts the country will become self-sufficient, largely from revenue from its mineral wealth.
