U.S. expects Afghanistan conference to pledge $3 billion a year



An international conference on Afghanistan in Brussels next week is expected to pledge $3 billion (£2.3 billion) a year in development support to the country up to the end of 2020, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.
Richard Olson, the U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, told a forum in Washington the U.S. administration would seek via Congress to maintain U.S. assistance to Afghanistan "at or near" current levels for the period.
