14 Jul 2019 The Khaama Press News Agency

The government of Turkey delivered military aid to the Afghan forces worth 4.5 million U.S. Dollars.

The Embassy of Turkey in Kabul said in a statement that the government of Turkey has delivered $4.5m worth of military aid to the Afghan forces as part of a bilateral agreement.

The

statement further added that the aid will support the logistics operations of

the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces.

Furthermore,

the statement added that the two countries signed a bilateral agreement in this

regard on 21st of September last year.

This comes

as Ankara ratified a motion last year to extend the deployment of Turkish

troops in Afghanistan for another two years as part of the NATO’s support

mission in the war-torn country.

The

legislation that was first passed by the Turkish parliament in 2015 also grants

the government authority to permit foreign army personnel to be transported to

and from Afghanistan through Turkey, according to Turkey’s Yeni Safak News.
