Afghanistan's future relies on continuous foreign aids: Hillary Clinton

12-05-2011 21:25 BJT

BONN, Germany, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on the world to continue their supports to Afghanistan after international peacekeepers draw out of the country by the end of 2014.

If Afghanistan once again becomes a source of terrorism and instability, it would incur huge losses for the international community, she said while addressing the international conference on Afghanistan which opened on Monday in Bonn.

Therefore, a comprehensive and effective strategy that maximizes the resources and their use should be worked out, she said, adding that the United States is prepared to support the Afghan transition in the long course ahead.

In return, the Afghans must also carry out reforms, eradicating the rampant corruption and fortifying their legal system, Hillary said.

The conference in Bonn, Germany, has a focus primarily on the transfer of security responsibility, future development and stability, international aids and an anticipated political settlement with the Taliban.

Delegates from over 100 countries and international organizations attended the meeting to work out a roadmap for the war-ragged nation, despite the crippling absence of key regional player of Pakistan.
