The National Security Council has approved a long-term financial aid plan for Afghanistan. At its meeting in Prague on Tuesday the council approved a total of 140 million crowns to be spent on development projects and training of security forces between 2014 and 2017. The plan ensues from an agreement reached at the NATO summit in Chicago in May of this year where the US emphasized the need to compensate the gradual withdrawal of forces by additional funds vitally needed to maintain law and order and assist development. The security council meeting was attended by President Václav Klaus in the role of supreme commander of the Czech Armed Forces.
