BRUSSELS, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- NATO has approved about 390 million U.S. dollars in a trust fund implementation plan to support the Afghan force, the organization said in a press release on Wednesday.
The plan will fund more than 37 projects for the Afghan army, including salaries and incentive pay, infrastructure sustainment, logistic sustainment and more. The funding also covers medical supplies and training.
Welcoming the adoption of the 2017 Afghan national army trust fund implementation plan last week, Marion Aubry, spokesperson for the NATO senior civilian representative, said, "This highlights the continued commitment of NATO allies and partners to support the financial sustainment of the Afghan national defense and security forces."
At Warsaw summit in July, NATO allies decided to continue the resolute support mission in Afghanistan beyond 2016 and confirmed funding for Afghan forces until 2020.
