A groundbreaking ceremony was held in Afghanistan on Wednesday to commemorate increased support from Korea in the region. Officials from a U.S. military base in Bagram, some 60 km north of the capital, as well as Afghan government officials attended the event.
This follows Korea's announcement last month that it will expand aid to the war-torn region, including medical services and vocational training programs starting next year. The job-training program will offer classes such as automobile maintenance, while about 40,000 local residents are expected to benefit from Korean medical services.
