Kishida Pledges 200-M.-Dollar Aid for Afghanistan at G-20 Summit

   Tokyo, Oct. 13 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, at an online extraordinary meeting of leaders from the Group of 20 major economies on Tuesday, reiterated his country's plan to offer a total of 200 million dollars in aid for Afghanistan by year-end.
   Kishida stressed the need to maintain economic activities and basic social services in Afghanistan, where confusion has been growing since the Taliban took control of Kabul, the country's capital, in mid-August.
