The international community is expected to continue providing Afghanistan with up to US$ 2 billion in development aid for the next four years, the UN special envoy to the country has said.

A major conference got underway in Brussels on Tuesday, hosted by Afghanistan and the European Union, to secure continued support for the country's reform efforts.

It's also an opportunity for the government to present its 2020 vision and strategy for a stable and secure country, free of corruption.

Envoy Tadamichi Yamamoto, who is also the head of the UN Mission there, shared some of the most pressing challenges facing Afghanistan with Ari Gaitanis.
