HERAT, Afghanistan, July 30 (Xinhua) — Reconstruction projects have been launched in Afghanistan’s Herat city, the capital of western Herat province, Herat Mayor Hayatullah Mahajir Farahi said.

Farahi also noted that Herat municipality would complete 54 development and reconstruction projects at the cost of 650 million afghani until the end of the current Afghan fiscal year which ends on March 20 next year.
