KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Japan on Tuesday pledged $25 million for the construction of school buildings in three provinces of the country, an official said.

With financial assistance of $24 million over the past four years from Japan, 51 schools had been constructed, acknowledged Educationinfo-icon Minister Ghulam Farooq Wardak, who thanked Tokyo for offering new aid.
