Egypt Offers Technical Support for Afghanistan.

Cairo, March 16 (BNA) - Egyptian foreign ministry announced on Friday that the Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with the Commonwealth has started implementing a comprehensive plan to support Afghanistan in all fields, including the qualification of diplomatic cadre, training transportation and literacy experts, and dispatching experts to repair the monuments of the Afghani city of Ghazni that was chosen 2013 Islamic Cultural Capital.

The fund is set to launch one-year-long security training courses in March for 90 Afghani trainees in the Police Academy, based on a request from the Afghani side. Egypt's foreign ministry has two technical cooperation funds; one is concerned with the African countries, and the other with the former Soviet Union countries and Afghanistan. The two funds organize training courses for personnel from the two regions, and send Egyptian experts, trainers, physicians and engineers to support development efforts there whether through bilateral programs or cooperation with international donors.
