REUTERS/Omar SobhaniDozens of nations, international institutions and the European Union combined to pledge billions in aid for Afghanistan at the conference in Geneva. But many, including the United States and Germany, slapped strict conditions on future funding and some committed for just the next year - departing from four-year pledges made in the past. “We’re pleased to pledge today $300 million...with the remaining $300 million available as we review progress in the peace process,” U.S. The United States has contributed roughly $800 million a year in civilian aid in recent years. France pledged 88 million euros ($104.20 million) and Canada 270 million Canadian dollars ($206.66 million).

GENEVA (Reuters) - Foreign donors pledged a projected $12 billion in civilian aid to Afghanistan over the next four years at a conference on Tuesday, but many made it conditional on protecting human rights and making progress on peace talks in a major shake-up for the country’s economy. The United States said it had pledged $300 million in civilian aid to Afghanistan next year and would make available another $300 million based on progress in peace talks. “We stand ready to support Afghanistan and to that end we’ve made available $600 million for civilian assistance needs in 2021. The United States has contributed roughly $800 million a year in civilian aid in recent years. The European Union pledged 1.2 billion euros ($1.43 billion)over four years but emphasised aid was conditional.

Many donors also put strict conditions on future funding and some officially committed for just the next year. The United States pledged $600 million in civilian aid to Afghanistan next year but made half of it conditional on progress in peace talks. “We’re pleased to pledge today $300 million...with the remaining $300 million available as we review progress in the peace process,” U.S. The European Union pledged 1.2 billion euros ($1.43 billion)over four years on Tuesday but emphasised aid was conditional.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Qatar’s public prosecutor has filed criminal charges against an unspecified number of police officers working at Qatar’s Hamad airport after women said they were invasively searched there last month. Qatari officials said the searches were conducted in order to locate the mother of a new-born child found abandoned in a garbage bin in an airport bathroom. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said the searches were appalling and Qatar’s Prime Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz al-Thani has apologised. The public prosecutor did not say what crimes had been committed, how many police officers had been charged or detail the penalties they faced, such as imprisonment, if convicted. The public prosecutor said it had also charged the child’s mother, who has left the country, with attempted murder and that it had launched legal proceedings to arrest her.

(Reuters) - Afghanistan faces funding cuts and tighter restrictions on vital aid from an international donor conference this week, marking further challenges for a nation torn by two decades of war and now ravaged by COVID-19. The strategy aims to protect the peace talks and prod the Afghan government to improve allocation, they said. Donors at the last conference, in Brussels in 2016, pledged $15.2 billion for 2017 to 2020, or $3.8 billion a year. The peace talks in the Qatari capital Doha have stalled and the Taliban refuses to call a ceasefire. But senior diplomats told Reuters that a breakthrough was expected in the peace talks after the donor conference.

Members of Taliban's peace negotiation team met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the Qatari capital Doha, on Saturday.

"The global economy is in its worst state in a century," warned Yousef Al-Benyan, chairman of the Business Twenty (B20), a group made up of high-level CEOs from around the world. "The challenging opportunity is to build back better, with real urgency required from policymakers and business leaders," he added. B20 warns of trade crisis exacerbated by Covid-19On Monday, the B20 leadership made 25 policy recommendations for the G-20 group. Specifically, it recommended G-20 leaders commit to carbon neutrality in the second half of the century, preferably by 2050, and accelerate the implementation of policies toward that goal.

Kameko wins 2000 Guineas as Pinatubo disappoints

(CNN) Kameko won the delayed first classic of the British horse racing season Saturday as the much-vaunted Pinatubo could only manage third place in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket. Champion jockey Oisin Murphy drove the Andrew Balding-trained 10-1 shot into the lead in the final half furlong of the famous Rowley Mile to relegate Frankie Dettori on Wichita into second. Charlie Appleby's Pinatubo, unbeaten in six races as a two-year-old and with a higher official rating than the legendary Frankel, had every chance under jockey William Buick, but could not find that extra gear when it mattered.
