The aid commitment, running through 2017, comes as US troops are withdrawing and Afghanistan is seeking to strengthen ties with China and other regional powers.

Ghani is expected to take part in a ministerial meeting of the Heart of Asia-Istanbul process, where representatives from regional countries will discuss Afghanistan-related issues.
