Afghanistan Air Force will soon be receiving two transport planes from China.
China, a few months ago, delivered first batch of military aid to Afghanistan National defense and Security Forces (ANDSF).
"The delivery of the planes will play a vital role as the Afghan Air Force needs the planes for the transportation of the army officials on official trips inside and outside the country," MoD spokesman Dawlat Waziri was quoted as saying by Khaama Press Monday.
Afghanistan received the first batch of military aid from China earlier in the month of July which followed as the country has been attempting to increase role in supporting in Afghanistan amid deteriorating security situation.
Earlier China’s Chief of Army pledged over $70 million to help support and equip the Afghan security forces. During his visit to Afghanistan earlier in March, Chief of China’s People’s Liberation Army Mr. Fang Fenghui, announced the fresh military aid. The latest aid will follow besides Beijing’s ongoing cooperation in development and economic sector, he said.
China will call a regional summit to implement the proposal by President Ghani during Shanghai conference for fight against terrorism, Gen. Fenghui added.
Afghanistan is located in a strategic location and acts as an important economic belt, which is continuously threatened by the terror groups, Gen. Fenghui said.
