The Swedish government’s aid agency SIDA said Monday that the country will give some US $35 million dollars in aid to Afghanistan to help reconstruction efforts in the war torn country.

In a statement SIDA said that ”the situation in the country is very difficult and that is why it is absolutely necessary for the world to help.”

SIDA added that ”after the fall of the Taliban regime there is now a fragile peace ... The government does not have full control over the country, where primarily the south-eastern parts serve as a base for fundamentalist movements.”

The aid money will be earmarked for security, law and order, and social sectors, as well as developing the private and public sector. Sweden has given some US $86 million in aid to Afghanistan since 2002.
