Jalalabad [Afghanistan], July 12 (Xinhua/ ANI): The Afghan government has decided to build a civilian airport outside Jalalabad, the capital of eastern Nangarhar province, a senior official of the country's Civil Aviation Qasim Wafizada said.

According to the official, the new airport would be constructed on 3,500 acres of land in Kozkunar area at a cost of 40 million U.S. dollars within two years.

The inauguration ceremony of the airport was held with the participation of central and provincial government officials on Friday (July 10th) and the ranking officials laid the foundation stone of the planned airport.
