The Turkish newspaper quotes a recent AAN report on the Afghan economy:

Grants to Afghanistan amount to $8.5 billion per year – equal to 43% of the country’s gross domestic product – and pay for 75% of public expenditure, 50% of its budget, and around 90% of government security spending, according to an assessment by the Kabul-based research group Afghanistan Analysts Network.
