Karzai Heads to Japan for Tokyo Conference

President Hamid Karzai flew to Tokyo, Japan on Saturday to attend the Tokyo Conference where donors will pledge an annual aid of around USD 4 billion to Afghanistan.

The one-day conference will focus on reviewing Afghanistan’s achievements so far since its establishment of the new government and assessing how it will stand on its own feet after the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country.

To muster international community’s support at Tokyo conference, the Afghan government would show up with its friendly proposals such as fighting against corruption, drug trafficking and money laundering and ensuring good governance.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be attending the conference.

She visited Kabul before her trip to Tokyo and called tomorrow’s conference a significant step towards preparing Afghanistan to run on its own.

Speaking at a press conference in Kabul, Mrs. Clinton said that Afghanistan is heavily depended on foreign for its economic development and any significant drop-off in financial assistance after 2014 could set back the country’s development.

“We want to continue to invest in doing in what you believe, you need. That is why it’s important to go to Tokyo together to discuss the next stages for investment in what has been called the transformation decade. We will continue, of course, to protect Afghanistan from any efforts by insurgents and outsiders to destabilise Afghanistan,” she said in Kabul on Saturday.
