US to fund Afghan army centre

Aug 14, 2011 - 15:34

KABULinfo-icon(PANinfo-icon): The Afghan National Army (ANA) Deployment and Management Centre (DMC) will be established at the Kabul International Airport at a cost of $80 million.

Afghan and US military officials laid the foundation stone for the DMC, which will cost $80 million. The US has provided funding for the centre which will lead the six military corps and the 111th brigade in the capital. 

Maj. Gen Murad Ali Murad, the ANA infantry commander, said the centre being built over 11,500 square metres would be completed in January 2012. Once completed, the facility will accommodate 1,000 officials. 

"The center will help in distribution management and avoiding civilian casualties during nighttime operations," the general hoped.

Maj. Gen Muhammad Akram, deputy chief of staff, called the new centre important and said it would be effective in completing security transition in 2014.
