Afghanistan must spend its aid money more wisely, the European Union foreign policy chief said Saturday as EU foreign ministers discussed ways to increase funds amid allegations of corruption in the Afghan government. The ministers said that, once the new Afghan president and government take office, the 27-nation bloc will need to restructure its aid plan to improve the way the money is spent. EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana said the new Afghan government would be held more accountable over how it handles donor cash. "When we talk about a government ... it means a government that is not corrupt," Solana said at the EU ministers meeting in Stockholm.
