China comes forward to help Afghanistan

China has started to get a better hold on the economy of Afghanistan, which has just had a political turnover. And, this is the first road towards the goal. Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told about on the Afghanistan channel, TOLO news. On Monday, China’s ministers met the Taliban’s delegation. China’s foreign minister Wang-Yi-Doha met his Afghanistan counterpart Ameer Khan Muttaki during his Qatar visit on October 25,26. Earlier, he had met Afghanistan’s President Mullah Baradar. China said it would help Afghanistan reform and urged Afghanistan to adopt a friendly policy with its neighbors to build a modern country.

In the meeting

During the meeting, Wang said that Afghanistan is facing quadruple challenges: economic chaos, governance difficulties, humanitarian crisis, and terrorist threats by decades of war. Further, added that for overcoming these challenges, they require more support from the international community. He also urged the United States and the West as a whole to lift the sanctions. He appealed to all parties to engage with the Taliban economically and financially to help Afghanistan move forward on healthy development. However, this meeting was held amid the Taliban’s repeated appeal for its recognition internationally.

The East Turkestan Movement was also brought up during the meeting. Wand expressed his wish and hoped that the Taliban would show tolerance in the upcoming days and get all the castes and groups together. Discussing the current development in Afghanistan, Baradar said that the current situation is under control. The Taliban promised to protect the rights and interests of women and children without depriving them of their rights. Currently, Afghanistan has around $10 billion, which are foreign assets and are held in overseas accounts. These were frozen by the Joe Biden administration reserved in US bank accounts after the Taliban seized power in Kabul in mid-August. A month before this, Afghanistan’s delegation met Wang Yi in the northern Chinese city of Tianjin.
